Time for an update. As previously announced, the Richmond May Ball is not happening in 2020, and of course it would not have been possible to hold it this year anyway, given the Covid19 pandemic. The committee is, however, well into discussions about holding the event in 2021, when we hope that fundraising events such as ours will once again be possible. The plan is to hold the Ball on SATURDAY 22nd May 2021. We hope that our regular supporters will put this date in their diaries so that we can once again raise substantial funds for local charities and have a wonderful Ball!
We are delighted to tell you that, due to the overwhelming generosity of the Hearsum Family, we have pencilled this date into the diary at Pembroke Lodge where, with the addition of a magnificent marquee, we plan to hold a spectacular event, in true Richmond May Ball style.
Since its inception, the Richmond May Ball has raised over £1 million pounds for more than 15 local charities.
