The Lewis  Foundation Gala Ball

Saturday 9th November 2024

Fawsley Hall, Northamptonshire
Start: 6.00pm
Carriages: midnight

Lorraine and Lee are delighted to invite you once again to join them at the stunning Fawlsey Hall for a celebration of the continued success of The Lewis Foundation and also to help with the vital fundraising efforts for the charity.

Last year, they were absolutely blown away by your support and managed to raise a whopping £11,600 and this year they are confident that, with your help, they can easily manage that – and more with a target of £20,000 which you can be part of.

As well as a top-quality meal served in jaw dropping beautiful surroundings, you will be treated to the very best in entertainment that Northampton can offer and are guaranteed an absolutely brilliant night.  Rumour has it that last year the ‘after party’ was an event in itself!

We anticipate that tickets will be on sale by May, but in the meantime, please click below to make sure you’re first on the official invite list!

Our Fundraising

Thanks to the generous efforts of you, our sponsors, we are hoping to confirm that 100% of the ticket sales will be give directly to the charity.   This should ensure we sell out the dinner and make as much money as physically possible!

We are also going to be running a silent auction where this year, we will be organising it ourselves and asking for donations for prizes.  We therefore aim to be donating 100% of the proceeds to charity.
 

Venue

Fawsley Hall is a true jewel in Northamptonshire’s crown and is nestled deep in the countryside surrounded by open fields and beautiful views.  The original Tudor Hall dates from the 17th century but has been meticulously maintained and restored throughout its life and is now a high end yet relaxed 5-star hotel. 

There is also an award-winning Spa that guests can use should you choose to make a weekend of it and stay overnight and each room has been carefully and individually designed to make the most of the building’s many and original characteristics.

About The Lewis Foundation

Lorraine and Lee Lewis were so moved when Lee's mum was hospitalised with cancer that it led them to set up a charity.

Recognising the fear, upset and loneliness faced by individuals undergoing cancer treatment and their loved ones, the duo were determined that their charity would make a real difference. They set about sourcing donations, packaging and delivering gifts, whilst giving support to patients on oncology wards. That was April 2016, when The Lewis Foundation was born.

Today, the team has almost 50 volunteers and hundreds of regular supporters. The Lewis Foundation has gone from delivering 80 gift packs a month to one hospital, to delivering over 2,000 gifts to 17 hospitals in the Midlands every month.

Patients pick their gift from a gift list with 29 different packs to choose from and no donations taken in return.

Depending on which pack you choose, it may contain overnight essentials and toiletries, craft sets, hydration supplies, puzzles, miniature radios complete with batteries and headphones, and lots, lots more items many people in hospital might find difficult to buy themselves or simply cannot afford. For some individuals receiving cancer treatment, The Lewis Foundation volunteers are their only regular visitors.
