The MacmillanWinter Gala


The Macmillan Winter Gala

Join us

Wednesday 28 November 2018, The Dorchester Hotel

Join us for an unforgettable evening of fun, food and fundraising in the beautiful and iconic surrounds of The Dorchester Hotel. Guests will be welcomed with a champagne reception followed by a sumptuous three course dinner. Throughout the evening, you and your guests will have the chance to win some wonderful prizes through our evenings auction whist being entertained by some amazing performances.

In 2017 our Winter Gala raised a magnificent £340,000 to fund the wonderful work of our Macmillan nurses. This year we hope to raise even more!

By 2020, 1 in 2 of us will have had a cancer diagnosis at some point in our lives. Macmillan needs to reach the ever-growing number of people who will need us. To do this we need to improve access to cancer care and improve equality of access, 24/7. This is our ambition, our aspiration, and this is where you come in.

Join us this November and help Macmillan achieve our ambition.
