Friends to host 'enchanted' ball in Grantham for muscular charity

Two friends are hosting their second fund-raising ball to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy UK.

Luke William and Vicky Varney are busy preparing for ‘The Greatest Enchanted Ball’ at Belton Woods Hotel in Grantham, on August 3, after two of Luke’s nephews were diagnosed with Becker muscular dystrophy last year, a muscle-wasting condition which usually affects only males.

Ticket holders can look forward to champagne on arrival, a three course meal, live entertainment and a drag queen from Manchester as the master of ceremonies.

There will also be an auction with top notch prizes, including a chalet break in France, signed Manchester United shirt and a Euro camp holiday.

There will also be a raffle with smaller value prizes and they would like to hear from any individuals or businesses who could donate any prizes.

Luke and Vicky are hoping to raise £3,000 or more.

Luke said: “We like to pride ourselves on the fact that this isn’t your average ball. We have a drag queen, live band, photo booth and fun and engaging fundraisers with amazing quality prizes. Our early bird tickets sold out within 12 hours and we have already sold 100 tickets but there are still 70 tickets up for grabs.”

It is the second fund-raising ball that the pair have organised for the charity. Their first one, The Greatest Masquerade Ball last August raised over £4,300.
