Sophie Allport supports Cancer Research Emeralds & Ivy Ball

Sophie's Stories

We were so pleased to support Cancer Research UK and the Marie Keating Foundation this year at their Emerald and Ivy Ball, where the magical night raised an incredible £1,004,699.

We gifted a range of candles, botanical candles and fine bone china mugs which were used as thanking presents for guest, part of the gift tree (which raised almost £7,000) and were also used as decorations for the venue.

Ronan Keating, who set up the Marie Keating Foundation in memory of his mother who died from breast cancer in 1998, hosted the event and attended with his wife Storm.

The funds raised at the event will help support and fund the Cancer Awareness Roadshow Units, which is vital to communities allowing experienced nurses to travel the country educating people about cancer. The nurses talk to over 60,000 people each year, raising awareness about the importance of screening and helping people reduce their cancer risk as well as increase their chance of diagnosing the disease at an earlier stage, where treatment is more likely to be successful.

Our candles were also used to support Cancer Research's Carol Concert at St Paul’s Cathedral, which was a special evening and used to thank committee members and decorate the venue.
