Our 15th Axis Foundation Charity Ball raised £170,000 thanks to the generosity of our guests – our suppliers, subcontractors and supporters.
Axis Europe, parent company of the Axis Foundation, then match funded what was raised on the night to make a grand total of £340,000.
This money will go to fund and facilitate the small, local and impactful causes that the Foundation supports, including over £70,000 to our charity partner Demelza Hospice.
As our Foundation Chairman Peter Varney says: “I can’t thank you all enough for your support. It is no exaggeration to say you have changed the lives of many vulnerable people and communities for the better.”
The Axis Foundation’s 2020 Charity Ball had to be cancelled due to Covid-19. So this 2021’s record-breaking sum has even greater significance for the small local charities the Foundation support who were hit hard by the Pandemic.
The money raised at our 15th ball in December 2021 bring the total sums raised by all Axis’ charity balls to £1,190,000.
A very big thank you to everyone who made this happen including:
