Fundraising Ball 12 May 2018 at The Marriott Hotel, Leeds
Thank you to everyone who joined us at the 7th Beyond Cancer Annual Fundraising Ball on Saturday. Once again, your support helped to make it another successful evening!! The focus on the night was young people and the support they and their families receive from Beyond Cancer and the local Teenage Cancer Trust, based at Leeds General Infirmary. Funds raised at the event were shared between Beyond Cancer and Teenage Cancer Trust to continue their much needed work.
