Demelza Ball at Kensington Palace

20 September 2016
Our flagship charity ball, held in the magnificent surroundings of Kensington Palace raised a fantastic £50,000!
More than 200 guests enjoyed a champagne reception on the terrace of The Orangery at the Palace - home to many past and present members of the British Royal Family - before dining on a delicious three-course meal.
Demelza’s Chairman Sarah Phillips welcomed guests to the flower-laden Orangery and gave an update on our work.
Major Donor Manager Sarah Kemsley said: “Our guests really appreciated the surroundings for this year’s ball. For many, it was the first time they had been to Kensington Palace.”
Auction items included an overnight stay in the officers’ mess, followed by a day training with the Royal Marines at their Commando Training Centre near Exmouth, and a stunning Stevenson Brothers’ rocking horse signed by Joanna Lumley, along with mementoes from her recent Ab Fab film.
