An Enchanted Evening to raise vital funds for local charities

Cheltenham businesses, residents and dignitaries are invited to join the mayor of Cheltenham, Cllr Klara Sudbury, for her civic ball - An Enchanted Evening.

The fundraising black tie event will raise money for the two local charities the mayor is supporting through her charity appeal.

The Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity's Focus Fund provides vital equipment and support for cancer patients at Cheltenham General Hospital. The Hollie Gazzard Trust was set up following the brutal murder of Hollie by a former partner and works to raise awareness of and tackle domestic abuse.

This very special evening takes place at Manor by the Lake on Friday 23rd February, with tickets on sale for £50 per person. All profits will go to the mayor's chosen charities.

Guests will enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the Manor House before sitting down to a delicious three course dinner at 7.30pm in the ballroom. Music will be provided by pop skiffle band, Thrill Collins, and there will be a raffle and auction.

Cllr Klara Sudbury said: "Manor by the Lake is a magical location for what I hope will be a very memorable evening. During my mayoral year I have wanted to bring some fun to the role of mayor, whilst raising a lot of money for two great local charities. I am delighted that Thrill Collins are bringing their own brand of funky pop covers to my civic ball. This event is a really important part of my mayoral year; it promises to be a night to remember."

Tickets are available from Jennie Ingram, telephone 01242 264108 or email jennie.ingram@cheltenham.gov.uk
