An Isle charity that funds vital treatment and support for young families fighting cancer holds its biggest fundraiser, a masquerade ball, in June.

The sparkling event, to be held at the Baths Hall, Scunthorpe, will celebrate Team Verrico’s fantastic achievements so far, and raise the cash it needs to do its best for people needing its help. Team Verrico also fund cutting edge research which aims to find different ways of identifying and treating cancers.

Those who attend are promised a fizz reception, plentiful food and wine, live entertainment, music, dancing, laughs and a sprinkle of magic. A raffle and auction will add to the fun and funds.

Tickets are on sale now priced at £39, and are available to purchase individually or in tables of eight or 10. But they are disappearing fast and anyone interested in joining the party is advised to order soon. Dress code will be black tie with optional (but encouraged) masquerade. Visit www.teamverrico or Team Verrico’s facebook page to reserve tickets. A double entry and hotel deal is also available.
