Throughout the year, Chain of Hope hosts a number of fundraising activities that give you the opportunity to take part in something great whilst helping us to raise valuable funds to continue our work. Read on for upcoming opportunities to get involved...

Gala Ball

Friday 17th November 2017

Grosvenor House, Park Lane

Since February 2002 we have been hosting our flagship fundraiser, the Chain of Hope Gala Ball. The Ball is a spectacular event enjoyed by 800 guests, and over the years it has been attended by celebrities such as Sir Mick Jagger, Sienna Miller, Jude Law, Rod Stewart, Sir Michael Caine, Rupert Everett and Omar Sharif.

In 2016, the Ball had a record year, raising more than £2.6million! Watch a film of the Ball here. Every year hopes to be bigger and better than the last. This really is a social occasion not to be missed!

Book your table today

Tables of ten and individual tickets are on sale now! We also have a vast array of sponsorship opportunities available if you or your company wish to support the Ball. If you would like to discuss these opportunities in more detail, or to purchase tickets for this must-attend event, please contact Rosie on 020 7351 1978 or email

Virgin Money London Marathon

Sunday 23rd April 2017

Each year we are proud to support a team of Chain of Hope runners in the London Marathon, one of the world’s greatest mass participation events, and in 2016 our runners collectively raised nearly £20,000.

The day is a chance for volunteers new and old to gather together with our team to cheer our runners around and is always a rousing occasion as we watch thousands of people take on this huge challenge. We would love for you to join us, so please email Sarah to find out more:

In 2016 Rachel from our head office ran, alongside Toby, a newly qualified doctor, Seun, who was inspired by the work that we do, Joe, a perfusionist at the Royal Brompton Hospital, and Nic, who was inspired to run after his friend's child was operated on by one of our surgeons.

If you are interested in running next year, then please email Sarah to find out how you can join our team of runners!

Join the team

There are also opportunities throughout the year to join the Chain of Hope team in delivering our events. Whether it’s cheering on Marathon runners or selling raffle tickets at our Gala Ball, we’re always looking for willing volunteers to help our events run smoothly.
