Mad Hatter’s Ball rearranged

Have your say

A MAD Hatter’s Ball has been re-arranged.

The event was due to take place in June, but will now be held on September 14.

It has been arranged by Sunderland mum and daughter Janet and Michelle Kenny, from Doxford Park.

Each year they team up to organise a fund-raising ball after Janet, 58, beat cancer.

Over the years, the pair have raised tens of thousands of pounds. Their latest venture is an Alice in Wonderland-themed ball, at the Gosforth Park Marriott in Newcastle.

Janet said: “It’s something that affects so many women, but they shouldn’t have to go through it alone.

“It really is something that needs highlighting and bringing out in the open.”

Tickets are £55, which includes a drinks reception, three-course meal and live entertainment. Call Michelle on 07855 553 920 or email
