Black tie event for charity close to organiser's heart

Where: Stanway Tithe Barn, near Winchcombe

When: Saturday, May 4, 7.30pm-midnight

A black tie charity event is being held at an stunning Cotswold venue in aid of Winston's Wish, a charity very close to the organiser's heart.

'The Bling Fling' is taking place at Stanway Tithe Barn on Saturday, May 4, to raise funds for the Gloucestershire-based charity that supports children and young people after the death of a parent or sibling.

Organiser Karen Sutton from Hatherley, Cheltenham, said: "This is a charity very close to my heart after suddenly losing my husband Simon, two-and-a-half years ago, leaving myself and our two daughters behind.

"Winston's Wish have been an invaluable support to us at an incredibly difficult time, and sadly their services are in great need. I wanted to give something back so they can continue to provide bereaved children with support and care."

Karen said The Bling Fling was shaping up to be a fantastic evening with a live band, street food, reception drinks and canapés, a magician, an auction, a silent auction and a raffle.

"Some of the amazing lots we have are a year's hairdressing from Stuart Holmes including cut and colour, Lakefest tickets, a vineyard tour and tasting for 16, Land Rover off-road experience day and a Banksy print, to name but a few.

"Tickets are £45 each and if you would like to come along and have a fabulous evening whilst raising money for this amazing charity please contact me at karenlsutton@hotmail.co.uk  "
