On 13th March this year Business students at the University Campus Oldham held a charity Masquerade Ball.
The students from UCO got in touch with the Coliseum in January for auction items as part of one of their fundraising activities at the ball. The Coliseum offered two tickets to the hit period comedy, Hindle Wakes.
The ball was a black tie event including a champagne reception and three course Italian themed meal. Other prizes for the charity auction included a 1987 Jaguar XJS along with two tickets for the British Superbike Championships at Donington Park, golf lessons, vouchers for beauty treatment, a computer tune up and an overnight hotel stay.
The ball was a huge success, raising £4772.00 for the Teenage Cancer Trust which will help them to continue their vital work with young people who are suffering from Cancer.
Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the seven young people aged between 13 and 24 who are diagnosed with cancer every day.
