The Lancaster University Society of History (LUSH) will be hosting a charity ball on Friday 22 February in association with War Child and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Described as an ‘amazing event’ by the LUSH Executive, the evening will be a themed Masquerade Ball and is to be held at the Lancaster Golf Course, with a three course meal provided.
Anyone is welcome to attend the charity ball, not just society members. Tickets cost £28 and can be purchased by speaking to a LUSH Executive member or by searching ‘Lancaster University Society of History’ on Facebook.
The LUSH Executive said: ‘First and foremost it is a charity event raising money for two excellent causes. If that isn’t a good enough reason to come along then we are sure that an evening of fine dining, live music and an opportunity for dressing up in your glad rags should persuade anyone who is on the fence.’
Two very worthy causes are being supported though this fundraiser. War Child is a charity that aims to provide ‘life changing support to the most vulnerable children whose families, communities and schools have been torn apart by war.’ It works in conflict-affected countries such as Syria, Afghanistan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The work carried out by War Child is close to the heart of LUSH General Secretary, Kristina.
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the UK’s only national charity dealing with all aspects of Cystic Fibrosis. The Trust supports ‘excellence in research and clinical care, as well as providing practical support and advice to people with Cystic Fibrosis and their families.’ The Cystic Fibrosis Trust was the choice of LUSH President, Gemma, due to a personal experience of a friend who suffered Cystic Fibrosis.
LUSH have previously organised a charity ball, but never on this scale. Furthermore, this is the first time it has been open to non- LUSH members – meaning anyone can enjoy the three course meal provided in the superb setting of the Lancaster Golf Course, a place with an esteemed reputation for holding such functions.
