A Night at The Colosseum - Saturday 14th May

Tuesday 24th May 2016

Louise O'Halloran, Director of Juno Moneta Wealth Ltd, created back in the November of 2015 - a committee of six brilliant people to discuss the possibility of putting together Juno Moneta's vision of an event that would bring friends, family, colleagues, clients and inspirational individuals together with the aim of not only making a difference in the here and now, but in the long term to three amazing charities.

Channelling all the skills, talent, passion and enthusiasm that sat in the board room that day, they finalised the idea for a Roman themed evening, delivering opulence, grandeur, entertainment and decadence that would to blow our generous donators and guests away.

Juno Moneta Wealth were proud to sponsor such an amazing event for:

Alzheimer's Research UK
Alzheimer's Research UK is the UK's leading dementia research charity. They power world class studies that give us the best chance of beating dementia sooner. Their scientists' ground-breaking work focuses on prevention, treatment and cure.
In the UK more than 850,000 people are currently living with dementia. Worldwide the figure stands at more than 44 million.
There is no cure for dementia. While some treatments can help people to live with their symptoms a little better, there are no treatments that slow or stop diseases like Alzheimer's.
Because Alzheimer's Research UK receives no government funding, the charity is completely dependent on the generosity of supporters to fund its research programme. Thanks to you, Alzheimer's Research UK is leading the fightback by supporting dementia research projects worth over £33 million in leading universities across the UK.

Maggie's
Every year, 18,000 people are diagnosed with cancer in Wales, facing tough questions, exhausting treatment and difficult emotions that can range from anxiety to loneliness and isolation. These challenges affect not only those with cancer, but their family and friends, too.
Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff sees around 5,000 new diagnoses a year, with a further 50,000 new outpatient appointments from people living with or after cancer within the South Wales cancer network. The largest cancer centre in the country, it provides specialist cancer services to over 1.5 million people in Cardiff, Newport and beyond.

Maggie's and Velindre Cancer Centre are working in partnership to create cancer support of the highest quality for people in South East Wales, building upon the success of Maggie's South West Wales at Singleton Hospital in Swansea.
Once established, Maggie's South East Wales is expected to receive up to 20,000 visits a year.
