Tickled pink with charity fund-raiser

Pink Ball at Nailcote Hall gives hospitals cancer cash boost 

A Pink Ball at Nailcote Hall Hotel Golf and Country Club raised more than £15,000 for state-of-the-art cancer treatment at local hospitals. The popular event in its 18th year was organised by the hotel’s co-owner and two-time cancer survivor Sue Cressman who underwent a mastectomy 10 years ago and has continued to give back by donating a total £250,000 worth of life-saving medical equipment so far to local hospitals. The ball was attended by 170 guests with proceeds from ticket sales, an auction and raffle going to Solihull, Heartlands and Queen Elizabeth Hospitals.
