Nurses who devote their time to caring for chronically sick children are to be rewarded with a night of fun at Milton Keynes Masked Ball.

The hard-working team will be guests of honour at the lively event, which was set up seven years ago to raise money for children’s cancer charities.

This year the proceeds of the ‘ball that rocks’ will go to Emily’s Star, a cause set up by a city mum who experienced the Complex Care team first hand.Katie Elmer’s daughter Katie was born with the rare genetic syndrome Trisomy 18 and lived for just 26 days..

Thanks to the complex care nurses, Katie and her partner were able to take their daughter home to enjoy their precious time to gether.

Emily’s Star now raises money to support the nursing team, to raise awareness of Trisomy 18 and to help other parents of sick children.

The ball will be held at Jury’s Inn on August 10.

“It will appeal to a younger audience. There will be all the glitz and glamour of a Hollywood red carpet affair and it will be packed with live entertainment,” said a spokesman,
