Gary’s Gift Spring Ball
8 April @ 6:30 pm - 11:59 pm£10
On Friday 8th April we will be holding the inaugural Gary’s Gift Spring Ball at the Memorial Hall in Wincanton. The Ball is to raise funds for our friend and colleague, Gary White who was diagnosed with the devastating condition, Motor Neurone Disease in July 2021.
Gary’s Gift was formed with a single goal in mind – To raise as much as we possibly can to support our friends, Gary, and his partner Sarah as their battle with Motor Neurone Disease develops.
MND is life-shortening and there is no cure. Although the disease will progress, symptoms can be managed to help achieve the best possible quality of life.
Gary is loyal, driven, loving and has a huge heart. He is always the first to be there and support you before you even ask. With the support of his employer, Gary continued to work up until November last year, which has helped to keep his morale up. He has now taken up baking to keep him busy, for those of us that know Gary it came as a bit a shock as he was never known for his culinary prowess…..
Although Gary is now unable to talk it’s still the same Gary, still smiling and laughing and still doing all he can to help those around him.
But the truth is it’s our turn to be there for Gary and his family.
The aim of the Ball is to raise as much as we possibly can to help Gary to buy much needed equipment, as his needs will dictate, but more importantly to help Gary to create some amazing memories with his family as they embark on the incomprehensibly difficult time ahead of them. Our aim is to raise well over £10,000 and we are on track to do so.
We also want to raise awareness of just how devastating MND is.
The Ball will include, live music, a Hog Roast, a live auction and raffle with some incredible prizes – everything has been donated by amazing local and national businesses.
