The Sickle Cell Society is turning 40! To celebrate our 40th year we are running a whole host of events and activities. We would love for you to celebrate with us and get involved.
We have created a page dedicated to all our celebrations so you can see what we are up to, how to get involved and find out how to sign up to regular up-dates.
The Sickle Cell Society is excited to invite you to our 40th Anniversary Gala Ball. Hosted in the spectacular Royal National Hotel in Central London, the 40th Anniversary Gala Ball celebrates 40 years of working within the sickle cell community.
You are invited to join the celebrations, starting with a red carpet drinks reception attended by the Society’s Prestigious VIP guests. All guests will be seated at tables, before helping themselves to a delicious hot three-course buffet. There will be music during dinner, setting the tone of this celebratory event.
Dinner will be followed with performances by top entertainers, and all guests have the chance to win unique prizes at the Charity Raffle.Then the dance floor is opened so you can dance the night away to midnight.
