A Monster’s Ball in aid of Martlets


Our pals over at Hove-based IEP Financial have long been committed to supporting local causes across Brighton and Hove and for 2015 chose the Martlets Hospice as their official company charity. Providing essential care and support to patients with life-limiting illnesses, the Hospice requires £11,000 a day in order to carry out such vital work. For this, it relies almost solely on donations and fundraising. When we heard that IEP are throwing a Halloween ball to raise money for the cause, we were keen to get involved as Rose (who works for IEP) explains below…

Update! A successful night of fundraising…

“Though Halloween celebrations might be wrapped up for the year, here at IEP we are still spooked by the enormous success of our Martlets Halloween Ball! With over 350 guests in total, it was a truly spectacular affair and surpassed all of our expectations. The proceeds from the night were a wonderful £32,000 which will make a real and lasting difference to the Hospice. This money could fund The Martlets Hospice At Home service for 19 weeks! IEP Financial organised this event not only as a fundraiser, but to raise awareness of and promote the amazing work the Martlets Hospice does in our community. Many of the guests in attendance were from local businesses and companies who we hope will continue to support the Hospice after this event. We would like to extend a huge thank you to Rickshaw Travel for their generosity in supporting us with this fantastic cause – we would not have been able to raise such a vast amount without them. We will certainly be hosting the event again next year so make sure to check out our website for details!”

Plenty of spooky surprises in store

“IEP Financial are excited to be working together with Rickshaw Travel to support this fantastic cause. Our main fundraiser for the Martlets is our Halloween Ball on the 30th October. With a gourmet three course meal, magician, DJ, live band – plus both a silent AND live auction – it is set to be a spellbinding evening (pun intended). Thanks to Rickshaw Travel’s kind donation we will be offering a week’s holiday in Morocco as one of the live auction prizes.

With just over a week to go here at IEP we are doing everything we can to not only make this a hugely enjoyable evening but ensure it raises as much money as possible for the Martlets. Our offices are currently overtaken with Halloween paraphernalia and we are excited to unveil the many surprises we have in store on the evening…

IEP Financial are incredibly grateful to Rickshaw Travel for joining us in supporting this fantastic cause. We are certain the Halloween Ball will be a great success and we hope to see as many of you there as possible.”
