      Thanks for your kind words Jane, would be lovely to have even more people from the Meetup Gang' for the next HFH Ball and as you say, what a Fab night it was and ultimately its going to help a young MK girl and others with a terminal illness which is the most important thing!

      I agree Roger, it will be good if there are a few more MKNiT members next year to enjoy the fun! It really is great to be helping out a local charity in such a fun way, especially one where the beneficiaries are so young and so deserving!

    Roger .... I have the same clash of dates , it's my fault as I didn't check before accepting :-(

    March 27, 2013

    • Rachael

      Yes I would have really liked to attend however I have a weekend away booked for my daughters birthday ... Just got the dates wrong . X

    Hello Roger. I sent an email to the Ball organisers as requested asking for there bank details so I could pay. That was Sunday. I haven't had a reply as yet.

    March 27, 2013

    • Roger W.

      Hi Again Maureen, I have checked with Helen Carter (mum of Hollie the girl with the terminal illness) and she said she replied to your e-mail address straight away and then passed on to Dana' who is handling the bookings and she again e-mailed you? If you want to e-mail me to liaise further re this you can do this at this address [masked] and am sure this can be sorted out very easily

      March 27, 2013

    • Maureen W.

      If they replied from an email address different to the one I used to email them they will have got a message back asking them to confirm that they are a real person by hitting the reply then send buttons. It is the anti spam system. I do do a check once a week.

      March 27, 2013

  • Roger W.

    Great to have you + 1 coming Jane - your going to have a Fab time!

    March 27, 2013

    apologies but realised that I have a clash of dates

    March 26, 2013

    • Roger W.

      Shame you can't make it Jane as its a Great event

      March 26, 2013

  • Roger W.

    Hi Gang, I have just been liaising with others helping to organise the Hope for Hollie Ball and probably the easiest way to sort out payment will be if you e-mail [masked] with your booking request (in addition to RSVPing here) and then you will get a reply with how to pay for your ticket(s) Hope that is fairly simple and the Payment deadline is now by Friday 12th April. Thank you all so much for your kind support which is really appreciated

    March 24, 2013

  • Maureen W.

    Please can you post a sort code and an account number or email it to attendees and then we can transfer the money by internet banking.

    March 24, 2013

  • Roger W.

    Hi Gang, quick update my end as I have been out with meetings all day and out again this evening. RSVP and then I will be in touch re payment. A cheque made payable to Hope for Hollie or cash is probably the best way we can do this and we can liaise re doing that shortly. We will have one table for Meetup folks and another which will be pretty much all Meetup apart from 2 others. Anyone that has been to a Help for Hollie Ball will tell you how FAB they are and I can promise you that you will all have a really Great time and its all for a Great cause if you want to read more at www.hopeforhollie.co.uk

      Hi I would really like to go so if you can let me know how best to pay that would be great thanks. Karen

      March 23, 2013

    • Roger W.

      Hi Karen, Great you want to come and will put you down - you could either post or give me a cheque (payable to Hope for Hollie') or cash or I could try to get the details of the HFH bank account and you could transfer, whichever is easiest for you. I had said that payment was needed by the end of March but in fact I have got until Friday 12th April to get all the money from the Meetup Gang' that want to come. It's going to be a FAB night I can promise you!

      March 23, 2013

  • ruth

    Hi Roger I maybe interested to come! Could you tell me how to pay for the event?

    March 20, 2013
