Pink-themed ball for charities

A pink-themed ball is being organised this summer to raise money for three charities that help cancer sufferers.

Paul and Ann Sandeman will be hosting the Pretty In Pink ball at Azur, Marina Pavilion, St Leonards, on Saturday, July 2.

This event aims to raise £10,000 to be split between three charities, namely St Michael’s Hospice, Cancer Research UK and Friends Thru Cancer.

Mr Sandeman said: ‘We are still looking for companies to support our event in the way of prizes for our grand prize draw. One of the top prizes is a cash prize of £500. We have other sponsorship opportunities available for local businesses so please get in touch if you would like to support our event.”

The price is £50 per head and tables are for 10 people. There will be a sit down three-course meal with coffee followed by the raffle and live music and dancing. To find out more or tickets call Mr Sandeman on 07971 447452 or email
