The North West Breast Cancer Charity Ball has been cancelled this year, but will return in 2022, organisers have announced.

The annual fundraiser is one of the highlights of the local social calendar, but due to the current situation, organisers have decided not to hold it this winter.

In 2020, the North West Breast Cancer Charity Ball went virtual with a concert which was a huge success. The organising committee and all at Breast Centre North West are very grateful for all the donations received. The committee also wishes to record its gratitude to the performers who generously gave their time and expertise to entertain us in our kitchens and sitting rooms at such a difficult time.

Given the continuing impact of Covid 19, this year the committee has made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Ball. However, speaking on behalf of the committee Maire Lynam urged supporters of this important local charity event to “Save The Date for 2022! On Friday 2nd of December 2022, we will be back bigger and better than ever at the Silver Tassie Hotel and we can’t wait to see you! “

The committee will be announcing more exciting news over the coming weeks so keep an eye on local press and the North West Breast Cancer Charity Ball’s Facebook page for further updates.
