Professional MUA and stylist, Emma Hughes is the founder, the driving force and brains behind Great Balls Of Fire. She started it initially with the sole purpose in life to give back what the Fire Fighters Charity had given to her and her family after her father (a serving Bolton fireman) died on duty putting out raging grass fires.
Over a number of years now Emma has work tirelessly organising events, parties, get-togethers, social evenings and dinner dances, all to raid money for the Firefighters Charity.
She has now in recent times been joined by her long standing and good friend, Carol Jane Turner. Now with Carol on board they are collectively raising money for the wonderful MacMillan Nurses who looked after Carol’s father prior to him passing away. With the two of them joining forces, as it were, they have created well oiled and successful fundraising partnership which has been able to help out both very worthy causes.
Emma’s regular job as a professional MUA (makeup artist) and stylist, has over the years brought her into contact with some great people, who have since become very good friends. Two of which are popular and multi-award winning Toastmaster, Derek Timmins-Jones and Wedding DJ Dave “Double Decks” Bradley.
These fine gentlemen have recently found themselves been able to help out both Emma and Carol with their latest fundraising venture at the Olympus Fish and Chip Restaurant in Bolton. The event is planned for the 18th June and looks set to be a fantastic night of fun and entertainment, while keeping a little bit of a sensible head and raising some much needed cash for the two adopted charities.
Our official photographer who will be capturing the event as it happens on the night, is the very talented Ania Pankiewicz.
