After her father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a 19-year-old and her mother have organised a charity ball in Ancaster this Saturday to raise money to fight the condition.
“My dad was diagnosed with Parkinson’s about three years ago, and we want to do everything we can to help find a cure,” explains Harriet Butcher.
Alongside her mother Hannah Butcher and with the support of their friends and family, Harriet has put together a fund-raising event being held at Woody’s in Ancaster this Saturday.
The black tie ball will begin with a drinks reception and music provided by a jazz band, followed by a three course meal.
There will also be a raffle and auction, for which prizes have been donated by Asda, Tesco, Hy-line UK, LJ Fairburn and Son, Scania, Gills to Gems, Elite Fish and Chip Shop, Shepherds, Jacksons, Fitness with Harri, Woodland Waters, Urban Hotel, Indulge Hairdressers and Emily Price Nails.
The event starts at 6.30pm on Saturday, October 18 with tickets costing £40 and available by calling Harriet on 07703 859498.
All the money raised will go to Parkinson’s UK.
