Inaugural Verve Fundraising Gala Ball Raises Over £10,000 for Charity

Verve Rally hosted their inaugural fundraising Gala Ball on Wednesday night at The Bloomsbury Ballroom in London, raising over £10,000 for Make-A-Wish Foundation, which grants magical wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions.

The Verve Gala Ball raises funds for established charities based in England and Wales. The Gala and Verve’s other charitable activities are the initiative of Darshana Ubl, the co-founder of Verve Rally. Darshana is a spokesperson for business on BBC News, an investor, and has been the driving force behind several businesses. She believes in the principles of hard work, commitment to a cause and making the world a better place.

Over 120 guests were treated to a champagne reception, a three-course meal, wine, fundraising and live entertainment by DJ Joshua, Monroe and Benjamin in a sumptuous and luxurious atmosphere. Guests included Tessy Antony of Luxembourg, Ververs (Verve Rally participants who are travel and car enthusiasts), along with some of UK’s leading business leaders, political heads, influencers and all-round cool people who enjoy a good work-life balance and giving back.

Channel 4 was also filming for a new TV programme about fashion designer Ian Stuart. The series will feature Darshana Ubl and her amazing wardrobe.

Darshana Ubl says of the event: “Memories are one thing that cannot be taken from us. It has been a pleasure to raise funds for Make A Wish foundation to help put a smile on the faces of terminally ill children”.

“No effort towards others remains unrewarded” – Tessy of Luxembourg

Make-A-Wish Foundation grant terminally-ill children their One True Wish, providing hope for the future, strength to cope and resilience to fight their condition. They’re given quality time away from the daily realities of living with their condition and have the chance to make magical memories they can treasure forever – whatever their future may hold.

Natasha Dubash, Regional Fundraising Manager for Make-A-Wish Foundation, said: “We are thrilled that Verve Rally has chosen to support Make-A-Wish through their Charity Gala this November. I am sure that the event will be a huge success, raising funds for Make-A-Wish and enabling us to help grant more magical wishes for children and young people living with life-threatening conditions. The funds raised from this event will go towards making more children’s magical wishes come true. We are so grateful for the support.”
