On the ball for fund-raising

FINAL plans are being made for a fun-packed charity ball.

The Great North Air Ambulance Service’s annual fund-raising ball will take place next month, with a ‘glittering ocean’ theme.

It will feature a champagne reception, three course meal, live band, casino tables, entertainers and a disco, and the charity hopes to beat last year’s event’s fundraising total of £10,500.

The ball takes place at the Marriott Hotel, Gosforth Park, on Saturday, April 14. Tickets cost £60 on 01325 487263.
