Children’s Burns Trust Chairman of Trustees, Princess Marina Lobanov Rostovsky comments:
Fundraising is the lifeblood of all small charities, and like many others we have had a tumultuous few years in terms of raising vital income following the pandemic.
The incredible energy, dedication and generosity from Lumenis led to the
success of this event, which was made all the more special by having
a number of Children’s Burns Trust Ambassadors in the room along with
guests from our marvellous NHS teams. We are so grateful to everyone who
came along and supported in some way, the incredible amount of
money raised on the night will allow us to continue providing rehabilitation
support for burned and scalded children, as well as supporting our prevention
and awareness campaigns for which there is little or no national funding”.
Laure Boisseux, Founder of the Lumenis Cares Foundation, said:
“We’re thrilled that our first fundraising event has been such a resounding success. We are so grateful to everyone who bought tickets, supported us with raffle prizes, our wonderful sponsors Dermaroller andXCELLARISPRO, and also to our hosts Dr Dev Patel and Dr Tapan Patel
whose very generous donation will make a huge difference to the work of Children’s Burns Trust and the valuable work they carry out with children and their families. A wonderful evening had by all for this very worthy cause.“
