A CHARITY group is looking to be shaken and stirred at their up coming fundraiser.

In a bid to raise money for Cancer Research UK, a charity cocktail evening has been organised for next month.

The group of friends decided to arrange the event after the recent loss of close relations.

The fundraising ball is being held, therefore, in celebration of those who have survived, lost or been touched by cancer.

Evening dinner tickets for the event, on Saturday, June 11 in the Brocklesby Suite at Market Rasen Racecourse, sold out fast, but there is still time to buy after dinner tickets at £10 each, allowing entry from 9.15pm to 1am.

To avoid disappointment, early reservation is recommend as bookings will be dealt with on a first come first served basis.

The evening will include a Full House Casino, an amazing auction and raffle with great prizes and a DJ provided by QL Discos.

“We are hoping to raise £5,000 for Cancer Research UK through the charity ball, said Sarah Friend, one of the organisers.

“A number of local businesses, including Market Rasen Racecourse who is providing the great venue, have been instrumental in our organisation of the event

“Our thanks go to all those business, large and small, who have donated prizes for our auction and raffle, displayed our posters locally and supported the events committee. We can’t wait to see everyone on the night.”
