Optical Express has donated free laser eye surgery to the Kirsty Club’s annual Angel Ball, in an effort to support the Francis House Children’s Hopsice in Manchester. Held on Saturday, November 21st at the Hallmark Hotel, the event raised funds for the Hospice, a centre which provides support and care for terminally ill children and their families. The free surgery, available to be redeemed at any of Optical Express’ clinics across the UK and Europe, was raffled off among other prizes.
The star-studded event was hosted by Mike Sweeney. Other attendees included supermodel Caprice, singer Russell Watson, actor and singer Richard Fleeshman, and actors Sue Jenkins, David Fleeshman, William Roach and Denise Welch, among others.
Held annually since 2006, the Angel Ball was originally part of the campaign Kristy’s Appeal, designed to raise £5 million for the Francis House. After meeting this goal, the charity Kristy’s Club was founded, to provide continued support for the growth and ongoing running of the Hospice
