Have a ball for church

PEOPLE can still snap up tickets to help a church restoration fund striving to raise £150,000.

The Wing and a Prayer group for Holy Trinity Church, in Seaton Carew, is holding summer events to boost its total.

Members are holding a glitzy Diamond Jubilee ball with a James Bond theme on Monday, June 4, at the Staincliffe Hotel, ahead of a summer car boot sale and a fair.

The Diamonds Are Forever ball includes a three-course dinner, dance and singing from the church choir.

Tickets priced £20 are available from church members or Exchange and Move, in Scarborough Street, Hartlepool.

Proceeds from the fair and car boot sale will also go to the restoration fund.

They take place at the church in Crawford Street, Seaton Carew on Saturday, July 7, between 2pm and 4pm.
