On Saturday 8th October, 400 parents and members of staff from across the Foundation gathered at the RAF Museum for the first ABC Ball sponsored by Aurium Capital Markets. Thanks to the generosity of our guests over £50,000 was raised for A Better Chance Bursaries.

The evening began in the Milestones and Historic Hangars for a drinks reception. Parents mingled and chatted amongst the stunning exhibition of some of the earliest aircraft to have ever been built, whilst listening to the Mill Hill School Jazz band conducted by Music Director Kevin Kyle.

Guests were then led from the Reception area by a techno drummer and dancers on stilts to the dining area where they enjoyed a scrumptious 3 course meal served under the wings of a Lancaster Bomber.

We were very lucky to be joined by Leanne Armitage, a former bursary recipient who spoke fondly of her time at Mill Hill and the positive effect the opportunity has had on her life.

Rockaoke supplied the entertainment for the night giving the “popstars” amongst the crowd the chance to shine, singing their favourite tunes accompanied by a live band. There were some very professional performances, and some less so…!

There were fantastic Lots to bid on in both the Live and Silent Auctions with the money raised adding to our fundraising efforts. 

It was a fabulous night of socialising, singing and dancing and of course fundraising for A Better Chance Bursaries.
