NISA/NIGAT Charity Ball

NIGAT and NISA are collaborating to put on a charity ball on Friday 23rd June 2017 in the Ulster Museum in aid of Lifebox. This is for all staff in NI who work in theatres/ICU so please spread the word.

This will be a great opportunity to socialise with consultants/trainees/nurses from other hospitals and also raise money for a great cause.

There will be a drinks reception, music, three course meal, band, bar and a raffle/auction with great prizes. It's been a long while since there's been a 'formal' so time to dust off your tux/formal dress and get ready for the night of the year! Tickets are £45 and are available from reps in most hospitals and can be bought by emailing nigat [at] hotmail [dot] com. There are a limited number of tickets so please purchase early to avoid disappointment!

If you can't make it but would like to donate, we have set up a 'MyDonate' page.
