Night of the Stars 2015
The Auction of Stars at Wimbledon Bridge Club and Night of Stars 2015 at Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability raised 51,500 for:

 Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability is one of the most highly respected hospitals for neuro-disability in the world.  It provides assessment, rehabilitation treatment and long-term care for adults with profound and complex disabilities caused by disease or damage to the brain, spine or other parts of the nervous system.   Every day, it provides hope to its patients, residents and their families, helping them adjust to a new life; a life in which disability plays its part, but a life in which they can experience fulfilment and in which their potential can still flourish; a life that is enriched by care, love and personal achievement.

 Maggie’s provides free practical, emotional and social support for people with cancer and their families and friends, offering a programme of support that has been shown to strengthen physical and emotional wellbeing. Built in the grounds of NHS hospitals, Maggie’s Centres are designed by leading architects to be warm, welcoming and full of light and open space. They are places to find practical advice about benefits and eating well; places where qualified experts provide emotional support; places to meet other people or to simply sit quietly with a cup of tea. The first Maggie’s Centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996.  There are now 18 Centres across the UK, online and abroad, with more planned for the future.

 Mencap is the voice of learning disability in the UK. Everything they do is about supporting people with a learning disability, and their families and carers. Mencap provides high-quality services, challenges prejudice and directly supports thousands of people to live their lives as they choose. Mencap has strong relationships with a local network of more than 500 affiliated groups. These local groups are individual charities in their own right, but all work closely to ensure people with a learning disability and their families have support locally as well as nationally.

 React is a small but highly effective charity working to improve the quality of life for children with life-limiting illnesses living in financially disadvantaged households throughout the UK.   By eliminating red tape and bureaucracy, it can respond with practical and sensitive support within days, if not hours.  When a child's life is short, an immediate response is vital.   React can provide a wide array of support including specialist, educational and mobility equipment. Whilst these items have been recommended by medical professionals, who have identified specific need, they are unavailable to the family through any other source.  React also considers requests for basic essential homecare items, travel and subsistence and end of life costs.
