Chain of Hope Charity Ball

The 2012 Chain on Hope Annual Gala Ball, held on the 8th of November at the natural History Museum in London, was a fantastic evening for Chain of Hope, raising over £700,000. The live auction was the highlight of the evening with guests showing outstanding support for the charity. The Natural History Museum was transformed into a spectacular dining-room for the evening's events.

The Chain of Hope Charity has been saving lives for 18 years, providing children suffering from life-threatening heart disease with the corrective surgery and treatment they need, but do not have access to.
