Manchester Law Society Charity Ball…..the Wild West is coming to town!

  • 07/09/2010

The Sheriff of Manchester Law Society invites y’all to the wildest hoe down of the year….our Wild West themed annual Charity Ball. The high jinks will kick off at sun down, with champagne in the saloon bar of the Midland Hotel. The shenanigans will continue, among the gun smoke and dancing ‘til the small hours. Our un-missable line up includes the Honky Tonk piano, Can Can girls, Line Dancers, live band, quick draw machine and lots more!


The primary object of the Ball is to raise as much money as possible for our two nominated local charities which this year are:

Wood Street Mission:  A small charity doing a big job, Wood Street is dependent on donations in order to continue and expand the work it does helping people in need. Every donation helps Wood Street make a real, positive difference to local children and families affected by poverty.                                                                                        .
Wood Street Mission was founded back in 1869 by a group of local businessmen who wanted to help the people living in terrible poverty in the Deansgate slums of Victorian Manchester.

Today Deansgate is one of the most affluent areas of the city, but poverty continues to ruin lives in Greater Manchester and the support of local businesses remains vital to Wood Street in order to maintain its service to thousands of people who come to it for help every year.

The Gene Machine Charity:  The Gene Machine charity provides cutting edge equipment for the highly sensitive detection of Leukaemia cells, used in both advanced research and in the course of diagnosis and treatment of the disease.

Manchester is a leading centre for research and the development of these new treatments.
Technical advances worldwide are happening so fast they are outstripping the supply of money to keep Manchester abreast of them – the Gene Machine charity strives to plug this financial gap.

Through generous donations, our charity has been able to purchase AB1770 sequence detector, which is known as Gene M chine and is up and running in the Haematology Research Department at Manchester Royal Infirmary.                       .

Demand for the equipment is such that it can barely cope with all the samples for analysis. Maintenance for the machine has also been paid by the charity for the next three years. A further machine has been purchased to support Gene Machine.

The Charity’s current aim is to fund a specialist research doctor for three years to work in the Haematology Department. We need to raise £50,000 per year to achieve this.
