Archie's Ball

It has been 10 years since Lou and Gary Hill received the devastating news that their youngest son Archie was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.  Since then their lives have been turned upside down. This life-limiting condition will eventually lead to paralysis and significantly shorten Archie’s life.


Archie is now 13 and needs round-the-clock care by his devoted family.  He is unable to stand unaided and the daily struggles the family face are now becoming more and more apparent.   So we have decided that we would like to organise a ball - “ARCHIE’S BALL”.  A fund raiser just for the family, not for research and treatment, because Lou and Gary have already done so much towards that, but to help with the practicalities of caring for Archie which most of us take for granted.

Archie is a growing teenager, and Lou cannot now lift him on her own so if Gary is not around to carry him upstairs, Lou and Archie sleep downstairs on a mattress.  Archie now sleeps in their bed.  He is afraid to wake up on his own as he can no longer turn himself over in the night.  He cannot stand at the sink to brush his teeth or use the bathroom unaided.  

So now we'd like to help them and we hope you do too! We are hosting ARCHIE’S BALL to raise money for equipment that they desperately need around their home. More specifically, hoists and a specialist bed - both of which costs thousands of pounds. Any extra we can raise will be used to help with specialist carers and physiotherapists and help with his care going forward.

We are also looking for help with SPONSORSHIP (packages available) and AUCTION PRIZES (tickets, holiday homes, experiences or anything else you can offer, no matter how small). If you can help we'd love to hear from you - please click the CONTACT US button below.

All profits raised from the event will go directly to helping Archie so every penny really will make a huge difference!

So dig out your finery and join us for what promises to be a fantastic evening with great entertainment and all for a truly worthy cause.
