Tickets on sale for summer Black Tie Ball

PREPARATIONS are well under way for  a local hairdresser’s annual Black Tie Ball, and tickets are on sale now.

The charity ball is organised by Jane Wilson, owner of Jane’s Hair Salon on Beechwood Close. This event, on Saturday 13th June, will be the third consecutive year she has run the ball to raise money for Dorothy House Hospice Care.

Jane said, “People have really enjoyed the ball in the past and preparations are going well for this one.

“We haven’t changed much and are sticking to a tried and tested formula! Our last two events have raised roughly £2,000 each, and we’re hoping for more of the same in 2015.

“There will be a light supper, music from duo Atlantic Crossing, a disco, and a cabaret from the Melksham Music and Drama group.

“There will also be a raffle, and any prize donations would be gratefully received.”

Tickets for the ball, to be held at Frome Football Club, will cost £25 each and include the meal. They are available  in person from the salon or by calling 01373 452649.

Jane has been fundraising for charity for over 10 years with annual Christmas raffles and cake sales being held.

If any local businesses or members of the public would like to help Jane raise as much cash as possible, then any donations would be gratefully received. All proceeds from this event are going to the Dorothy House Hospice.

To buy tickets or to donate prizes call Jane on 01373 452649.
