About this Event

PRESS RELEASE

THE POSTPONEMENT OF THE MACMILLAN CANCER ‘HOPES & DREAMS’ CHARITY BALL WITH 104.7 MINSTER FM ON SATURDAY 6th JUNE 2020 at YORK RACECOURSE

Organiser of the Hopes and Dreams Charity Ball in aid of Macmillan Matt Ascough has announced today that with ‘huge regret and disappointment’ the event has been postponed from its planned weekend in June to November 2020 due to the coronavirus.

A statement from Matt Ascough the Event Organiser says “‘In response to the Prime Minister’s statement on Monday evening, advising the UK public to avoid unnecessary social contact, including in theatres, bars and clubs or mass gathering events and new public health guidance regarding avoiding social contact and stopping non-essential travel it is with regret that I must postpone my event. I fully appreciate there will be disappointment and that clients may have already made accommodation and travel plans to support my event, however the health and safety of everyone at this time is the upmost importance. We have to stick together and follow the advice given to get through these difficult times and we would not want to put our sponsors, suppliers, clients and volunteers in any danger or see all our hard work over the last year in organising this event not pay off. Therefore, with much disappointment and deliberation, it’s only fair I make this decision to move our date to the winter as we still wish to celebrate our 5th Birthday instead of cancelling the event and I believe this is the correct and a responsible decision to make”.

Matt also added “We hope there will not be much change to the advertised details already, however there could be some minor tweaks with a suitable substitute replacement as we rearrange the details and hope that with the move even more people will join us as we draw closer to a time of family, friends and celebration for the festive period ahead”.

The event was due to take place on Saturday 6th June 2020 and has now been moved to Saturday 21st November 2020.

Every effort has been going into this event until now and continues to do so with the new date with extra effort been put in as we start contacting all our amazing clients, supporters through raffle donations, sponsors and suppliers to accommodate the new changes and to continue to raise theses amazing funds for the charity. We would like to also thank all our sponsors and suppliers in accommodating the new changes from this uncertain time and for their continued support towards the charity event.

Matt Ascough also added “to those with tickets I fully understand your disappointment and how personal this event is to myself and very much appreciate everyone’s support towards my event and most importantly for Macmillan Cancer Support. I do hope that everyone will continue to support the event and be happy to accommodate the move by continuing to support us on November 21st. We have over 480 tickets booked for June 6th and I do hope this will not affect the support and generosity of everyone.”

Everyone will be contacted in the coming days to discuss the date change and their options and the organisers wishes everyone good health over the coming months.
