Alina Cojocaru, Romanian born senior principal dancer at the English National Ballet and Patron of Hospices of Hope, took to the stage in January 2019 in a magnificent performance dancing the title role in Manon.

Following the sensational ballet, a small number of guests were treated to a private dinner with Alina and her onstage partner, Joseph Caley, at the Coliseum where Alina spoke movingly about her commitment to the charity.

Thanks to a hugely generous donor who wishes to remain anonymous all proceeds from this event will go towards the work of Hospices of Hope in providing palliative care to our patients in South East Europe.
