Ball-goers will be dressed up to the nines tonight (Fri) when one of the most popular fund-raising events of the year takes place in Whitby.

Tickets to see Bryan Adams and a chance to meet him backstage - and even be his roadie - will be up for grabs in the auction. Compere for the evening is auctioneer Robert Smith.

The event raises money for three local hospices – St Catherine’s, Butterwick Hospice and Zoe’s Place, with the team’s current fund-raising tally for the year standing at around £4,400.

White Lily was set up by Whitby woman Lucy Bowes, who lost both parents to cancer in her teens.

Look out for pictures from the ball in next Friday’s Gazette.
