Ball cash will go to nurses

THEY will go to the ball – staff at a cycle company are staging a fundraising event in aid of Marie Curie and its team of nurses.

Dalby-based Purple Mountain has organised a Christmas ball at the newly-opened luxury hotel Raithwaite Hall in Sandsend.

Entertainment will be provided by York-based musician Alistair Griffin and his Gastric Band.

Tickets are £55 with a reduction for tables of 10 people or more and Raithwaite Hall is offering a reduced accommodation rate for ball-goers.

Proceeds from the event will go to Marie Curie nurses who work with patients in Scarborough and surrounding towns and villages. Tickets available on: 01751 460193
