We had a ball

ball1Last Thursday we held our second annual charity ball in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and we’re pleased to report it was a huge success.

Held in the beautiful Sopwell House in St Albans, a fantastic time was had by all and more importantly we raised a lot of money for a great cause, £17,800 to be exact.

The Ocado gang certainly scrub-up well and we had a wonderfully turned-out turnout, all ready for a fun-filled opera-themed evening.

The entertainment included singing waiters, a live five-piece band, very impressive live singing from Ocado’s Cece and a ‘Golden Ticket’ lucky draw with lots of posh prizes. Silhouette artists making pictures at people’s tables was a big success and also raised extra money.

The Macmillan Cancer Support is such an important and worthwhile cause I would like to offer a huge thank you and well done for getting involved and embracing our fundraising, you have really made a difference.

We are looking forward to next year’s ball already.
