This is the 30th anniversary year since the formation of Leukaemia Busters in 1989. It is marvelous to see the major improvements that have been to leukaemia treatment over this period and the modest contributions we have been privileged to have made.

On a new date to be announced we will hold a celebratory themed Gala Ball “Pearls of Progress” at St Mary’s Stadium, Southampton. Tickets are available now directly from this website by clicking “Book your place now” below.

There will be a drinks reception followed by a three course dinner, an auction and raffle  together with musical and other entertainment. For those who attended our last anniversary Silver Ball, we will be joined once again by the renowned soul and  Motown band, Madison Heights. Your host MC for the evening will be local comedian and impersonator Mike Osman who will put in appearances as Boris Johnson and Donald Trump. The charity’s Patrons David Gower and his wife Thorunn will also be  there together with the Mayor of Southampton, Cllr. Peter Baillie and Mayoress Kim Baillie joining in the fun on the night. There are fantastic prizes to be won in our auction that will include a holiday for two to Thailand and a luxury cruise for two plus many more high quality items!
