The annual Hawaiian Ball for the Cancer Support Group works the party formula to make it a fun night, brilliantly. You can even wear thongs! And everyone loves the casual but colourful dress opportunities, the mix of good music, dancing, food, fancy cocktails and the all important auctions and raffles which add to the ambiance as the MC - Cam Sullings - brings it altogether so guests enjoy themselves while being gently separated from their money for the cause.
Paul Walshe has been the prestidigitator of this night for six years, conjuring up an event to support the Cancer Support Group with his wide network of friends, businesses and colleagues showing their generosity in many ways. His genuine empathy and kindness is beyond compare and as he stepped down from the role he has put his heart and soul into there were tears, there was a gift and life membership of this organisation that helps those with cancer and their family with the necessities of life and good old fashioned care.
Over the six years there have been many stories told of survivors, this year it was a night to reflect on that and encourage more people to step up to the plate to give of themselves for The Cancer Support Group.
