Virtual Cornflower Ball 2020 – THANK YOU!
Thank you to everyone who joined us online for our ‘ virtual Cornflower Ball‘ #TogetherInIsolation on the evening of 12 March. We had to make the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event because of the coronavirus situation, a decision we made with the safety and health of our guests, staff and volunteers at the forefront of our minds.
We’re so grateful to our prospective guests for their unstinting support and understanding. We’d set ourselves the unprecedented target of £150,000 this year. And although cancelling will sadly mean a shortfall in funding, corporate sponsorship, ticket sales and donations have already raised in the region of £130,000, including an incredible £6000 raised via our online auction.
Huge thanks to our main sponsors Slater + Gordon and our other sponsors, 18 St John Street Chambers, Bott & Co, Clifford Law, Chicago and Gerard McDermott QC, Examworks UK, Exchange Chambers, Hayes Medicals, Leigh Day, Parklane Plowden Chambers, Simpson Millar LLP and Wesleyan, and to everyone involved for their continued support through challenging times. The Cornflower ball will return bigger and better in 2021, so watch this space!
