Black-tie ball to help Christmas party

Have your say

A CHARITY is holding a fund-raiser to support a Christmas party for disadvantaged and disabled youngsters.

Pennywell-based Hope 4 Kidz is hosting its Santa’s Christmas Party at Passion nightclub in Sunderland city centre on December 8.

To support the party, the charity is holding a black-tie Candlelit Christmas Ball on Friday, November 29, at Lumley Castle.

Tickets are £52.50, which includes a four-course gourmet meal, entertainment and disco with raffles and auctions. Guests will also have the chance to bid for a three-day charter on a luxury yacht berthed in Palma Harbour, Mallorca.

Viv Watts, of Hope 4 Kidz, said: “The ball is undoubtedly the most glamorous event of the year because it gives guests a fabulous night out with a feelgood factor of helping young people escape the stresses and strains of their everyday life and have fun with other youngsters in a similar situation.”
