UKACC charity ball raises thousands for cancer charity

The United Kingdom Air Cargo Club’s (UKACC) 56th Annual Charity Gala Ball on Saturday, 28 January at the Tower Hotel in London raised £7,740 for the charity Prostate Cancer UK.

Hundreds of guests enjoyed a three-course meal, networked, enjoyed the entertainment and took part in a silent auction and prize draw.

This year’s chairman Richard Miller of United Airlines Cargo nominated Prostate Cancer UK and the money raised added to other events held by UKACC and means more than £10,000 will be donated to the charity this year.
