The team at Gedling borough’s iconic Woodborough Hall have expressed their delight in being able to host the Black and Green Charity Ball once again on Friday May 17.

The Black and Green Charity ball was set up in 2018 when a group of friends set up the charity to fundraise for the Nottingham Hospitals Breast Institute in memory of a dear friend ‘Samantha Black’ who they very sadly lost in 2016 and also to give thanks for the treatment and support they gave to one of the group ‘Eloise Dobson nee Green’ in the same year.


Since 2018 they have held many fundraising events and have raised over £66,000 that has gone towards two state of the art mammography machines and more recently the complete refurbishment of the main patient waiting room within the breast institute.

The charity said: “The support they give to so many patients across Nottingham is incredible, providing all outpatient services for those requiring diagnosis or receiving treatment in the Nottingham area. Approximately 35,000 patients will visit the Breast Institute every year.”

On May 17 2024 they will be holding their 5th annual Black and Green Charity Ball at Woodborough Hall. The evening will include a welcome drink, 2 course meal, live music and entertainment throughout the evening. There will also be both a live and silent auction as well as a raffle to raise extra funds for the Breast Institute. Tickets are £100pp tables of 10 available and the dress code is Black and Green.


Lucy Spencer and Deborah Sawyer, members of the Black and Green Ball fund-raising team said: “Last years Charity Ball at Woodborough Hall was absolutely phenomenal and seeing everyone arrive in their Black and Green finery, always makes us feel so proud. We can’t wait for this year! It is your support that makes our fundraising possible”
