TFC Supplies are putting on the glitz for a charity ball – 11th November

On Saturday 11th November, local business, TFC Supplies, is hosting a black-tie charity ball at Crewe Hall Hotel to raise vital funds for Lewis Crossley, an extremely special 7-year-old boy from Hough, near Crewe. 

TFC Supplies are inviting friends, family and members of the local community and beyond to come together to enjoy a spectacular evening of entertainment and fundraising.  Guests will enjoy a drinks reception before taking their seats for a 3-course meal.

Manchester’s indie favourites – The Rainband

Entertainment will be provided by Manchester’s indie favourites – The Rainband, who have earned rave reviews from the likes of Liam Gallagher and Jim Kerr.  Their accolades include headlining the Italian Moto GP, playing alongside Paolo Nutini and achieving top 10 positions in the UK Indie singles chart.  The big-hearted band, led by singer, Martin Finnigan are very generously donating their services to the event.

Lewis Crossley

Two years ago, Lewis was diagnosed with T Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia and has subsequently undergone a variety of challenging treatments including multiple courses of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. On 6th June, Lewis’ parents received the devastating news that he had once again relapsed.  His family are not giving up hope and are tirelessly pursuing the possibility of new drugs and clinical trials.

The aim of the ball is to help raise as much money as possible for Lewis and his chosen charity – the Joe Gilligan Trust, (charity no. 1135808) a charity devoted to improving the lives of teenagers and young adults with cancer.

To help TFC Supplies achieve this aim, they are approaching local businesses with requests for donations for the charity auction, for which Hassall Brothers Auctioneers are kindly donating their services.  To date, TFC Supplies, the Dysart Arms, Crocky Trail, Crewe Hall, Wendy’s Flowers, Blue Planet Aquarium, Skin Health Spa, White Hart at Hough, Francesco, Grace Ladies Boutique, Hair 38, BizzyBods, Finefoodies Deli, Joanne Humphries Photography, Assurant, Hoity Toity Shoes and Si Belle have all generously donated prizes.  Any further donations of prizes will be most greatly appreciated.

Rolana Wright, General Manager of TFC Supplies said:

“I have been friends with Lewis’ dad since our school days and have followed Lewis’ progress throughout his treatment.  He is an unbelievably brave little boy and I am in absolute in awe of him.  I am sure that it will be a wonderful evening – the whole team are pulling out-the-stops to make it a night to remember.”

“We have been incredibly touched by the kindness and generosity that both the band and local businesses have shown – it’s community spirit at its best,” commented Paula Hassall, Marketing Communications Manager, TFC Supplies.
