A charity ball was held on Saturday to raise money for Beating Bowel Cancer.

Organiser Julie Kerry said the night was a huge success, as a grand total of £832 was raised.

This was raised in the name of two of Julie’s family members, Alison and Robert, who suffered from bowel cancer.

The ball also helped to raise awareness of bowel cancer as the staff wore the Beating Bowel Cancer t-shirts and leaflets were given to the guests.

Julie said: “Everyone who came had a fantastic time.

“We would like to thank Julia Baldwin and her staff who did us proud wearing the Beating Bowel Cancer t-shirts, providing a great service and a fabulous meal.

“We also had two of the nurses who work with people who have had bowel surgery and played a big part in the care of my husband Robert and also care for my dad.

“Everyone enjoyed themselves and the main thing is we brought the awareness of this cancer to the people attending.

“To our families and friends that supported us in raising this money for Beating Bowel Cancer in Alison and Robert’s name, we thank you.”
