An exciting evening of entertainment is being planned for the second White Lily Ball in a bid to raise thousands of pounds for three hospices.

The event which is in its second year is being organised by Lucy Bowes and her sister Patsy Maynard who lost both their parents to cancer.

They are being helped by to stage the ball at Dunsley Hall Country House Hotel by friend Kate Sleightholme.

Last year’s ball raised more than £3,000 for charity and the girls are hoping to do the same this time around for Saint Catherine’s Hospice, The Butterwick Hospice and Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice.

Tickets to the ball will include a three course sit down dinner, a glass of wine, entertainment from the Northern Monkeys and a raffle.

There will also be a charity auction led by Ian Halley of Richardson and Smith with some top prizes up for grabs including one night’s b&b at Dunsley Hall and a meal for two plus wine at the Board Inn, Whitby. Tickets are priced at £40 for the full evening or £15 for the after dinner entertainment from 9pm and are on sale from Lucy on (01947) 825585 or 07795562171.
