Muscular Dystrophy UK's 33rd annual Microscope Ball took place on Thursday 6 October. It was a night filled with dinner, dancing, & fundraising! Today, we are delighted to share that the event raised an amazing £318,000. This could fund over five years of pioneering research to find treatments and cures.
33 years ago, the Microscope Ball was set up by leading members of the property industry, after a colleagues son was diagnosed with a muscle-wasting condition. Many of these supporters are still actively involved in the organisation of the event, and since its inception it has raised over £2,000,000 for the charity.
We are extremely grateful for those who supported the event this year, in particular our key sponsors; Allsop, Canary Wharf Group, Great Portland Estates, Irwin Mitchell, Mishcon de Reya, Redevco UK, Redevco Investment Manamgement, Skansen, Siren & Property Week. We would also like to extend a huge thank you to our host, world cup winner Ben Kay, & our auctioneer, Duncan Moir, who both encouraged the audience to donate and did an incredible job. ...
