A bit about the Ball:

The first Bite-Back at Cancer ball was held in 2007, in recognition of two popular divers, Vickie Herrald and Sally Pearson, who were both suffering from cancer. It was their wish that the funds raised from the event were split evenly between their two chosen causes, Bite-Back and Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Vickie passed away on May 20th 2007, before the first event was held. Sally, in remission at the time, attended the first event, but then subsequently lost her own battle to cancer on 22nd February 2009.

The evening has now become a regular event in the calendar, as a legacy to their wishes and in memory of their positive and loving outlook on life, despite the harsh cards they had both been dealt.

The fundraising success of the event has grown year on year, thanks to the generosity of the attendees, and also the commercial sector in the form of donated gifts for inclusion in the charity auction and prize draws.
