Final countdown to sparkling ball for much-loved local charity, Sue Ryder’s Thorpe Hall Hospice

ON 20 October 2018, glamour and sparkle will be adorning Peterborough as guests of The Big Bold Ball don their finest glad rags for an evening of fundraising and frivolity.

Stamford-based marketing agency, OlsenMetrix, are hosting The Big Bold Ball, and promise a dazzling evening of dinner, music and entertainment with all proceeds going to, Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice.

To be held at the Holiday Inn Peterborough West, with around 200 guests, the ball is already being supported by local businesses such as BGL Group, Junction 17 Cars, Taylor Rose Solicitors, iG04, Strutt and Parker, Stamford School and Bidwells to name but a few.

“Back in 2014, we hosted The Moonlight Ball back in support of Thorpe Hall Hospice.” says Richard Olsen, managing director at OlsenMetrix, “It was a very moving evening that raised a fantastic amount of money, setting a corporate fundraising bar for the agency.”

To help achieve their fundraising targets, the team are still looking for sponsorship of some of the last remaining packages. There are also a handful of tables and tickets available for those who would simply like to attend on the night.

“Thorpe Hall Hospice is such a well-known and much-loved local charity,” continues Richard “so we’re really hoping that, in these last few weeks, we can rally one final flurry of support to make this an evening-to-remember for both the charity and guests alike.”

Community Fundraiser at Thorpe Hall Hospice, Joely Garner says, “We are so grateful that OlsenMetrix have decided to support Thorpe Hall Hospice with their fundraising ball again this year. Their last charity ball was a great success and, not only did the funds raised go towards helping support and care for people at the most difficult time of their lives, it also helped to raise the profile of the hospice locally. Support like this makes such a difference to us as community fundraisers and to those who benefit from the hospice’s care in the longer term.”

Tickets for the ball are on sale via
