Tickets selling well for final ball


ONLY a limited number of tickets are left as a cancer trust holds its final spring ball.

The annual ball, organised by the kind-hearted members of the Denise Taylor Cancer Trust, has raised around £30,000 since it was held for the first time four years ago.

The trust say this year’s event will be the last but the charity will continue its good work, aiming to ease the financial cost of cancer care for sufferers in Hartlepool by providing non-repayable grants. This year’s ball will be held at the Borough Hall on Saturday, May 17 and tickets, priced at £25, will include a three-course meal and live music provided by the Passion Killers.

The town charity was set up by inspirational Denise as she battled cancer. Denise organised the trust’s very first ball before she sadly passed away in July 2010, aged 59.

Her daughter, Helen Hart, 34, a member of the trust’s committee, said: “Tickets have sold really well for this year’s ball.

“We’ve already got 24 tables full which means we’ve only got six tables left so if people are wanting to buy tickets I would urge them to act fast. “It’s fantastic we’ve had such a great response, I’m sure everyone who comes along will help to make it another brilliant unforgettable event.”

The trust is also on the lookout for donations of prizes for raffles and auctions which will be held on the night.
