On the ball for charity

Published on 25 October 2016


A fantastic sum has been donated to Cancer Research after a fund-raising ball supported by AFC Kempston Town and also Bedford College staff and students.

Organised by Gary Ingerson, Michaela Martindale and Becky Lapworth, the event at The Park Inn, Bedford raised £9,103.53.

Among the generous sponsors were Fusion Lifestyle who run local sports facilities and also support AFC Kempston Town & Bedford College, which includes college students in all of its squads. Special thanks to Greycourt Florists & Events who decorated the ballroom beautifully.

Said Gary: “We had tremendous support from locals including Bedford College people and we are keeping up the theme with the football club having ‘Cancer Research’ on their pink shirts this season – as modelled by students.

“The ball was held in June 2016 and we are now planning the next one for September 2017 so all help will be gratefully received.”
