Having a ball for Indee Rose
6:30am Sunday 20th October 2013 in News
GENEROUS residents helped raise thousands of pounds for a Canvey children’s charity.
The annual Indee Rose Masquerade Ball was a sell-out event as the community donned their masks and their finery and came together for an evening of mystique at the Orsett Hall Pavilion.
More than 330 people attended the event including Canvey’s famous decathlete Dean Macey.
Also present was reality TV stars including Canvey’s X Factor star Luke Britnell and Britain’s Got Talent’s young dance troupe Elev8.
Also making an appearance was Hollyoaks actor James Redmond, who hosted the event.
The evening managed to raise a whopping £13,000 for the organisation set up in Indee’s name.
Organiser Jane Ball said: “We had a great turnout for this year's ball, and a big thank you to everyone who was there and made it such a great night.
“Everyone looked stunning and we hope you all had a good time.
“Please tell all your friends to come to next year's ball and show their support for a fantastic local charity.”
The Indee Rose Trust, which is based on the Charfleets Industrial Estate on the island, works tirelessly to bring a smile to the face of children with brain and spinal tumours.
It was set up in 2009 following the tragic death of Indee Rose from a brain tumour at the age of just three.
