Berry’s Jewellers Newcastle has been announced as the headline sponsor for the Willow Burn Hospice Diamonds and Pearls Ball in March 2024.

The event, hosted by Alfie Joey at Beamish Hall Winter Gardens, will be held on Friday 1st  March 2024 with live music from Borderland and a show-stopping diamond raffle. All income raised at the event will fund vital end of life care and bereavement support in Derwentside. 

Store Manager, David Nicholson and Berry’s Jewellers Newcastle have been supporters of the hospice for many years now, raising in excess of £17,000 through a diamond raffle and a charity golf day in partnership with Aston Martin Newcastle at Close House.

Rachel Todd, Head of Fundraising and Marketing at Willow Burn is delighted to be working with David and the team at Berry’s again this year: "I would like to say a huge thank you to Berry’s Jewellers and the team at the Newcastle store. Their dedication to not only raising funds but also awareness of hospice care, makes an incredible difference to our patients and their families, at a time when they need care and support the most.

“Last year’s ball raised over £25,000, which has funded 10 full days of in-patient care at Willow Burn, and this certainly wouldn’t have been possible without sponsors like Berry’s.

There are still sponsorship opportunities and tables available for next year’s ball and I would love to chat with anyone who would like to make a difference to hospice care and generate awareness of their business."

David Nicholson added: I am incredibly proud to be able to support the hospice again this year. Willow Burn is a very special place to my family and I urge everyone to get behind and support such a vital end of life service in County Durham.  With Berry’s, I hope to raise as much money as possible so that other families can receive the care and support that mine did.”

Caremore Services is also a Diamond Sponsor of the ball.
