THE COUPLE behind an annual charity ball which has raised more than £400,000 have urged party lovers to snap up the final few remaining tables.
Darren and Gail Baker are well under way with organising their 11th ball for the Weston Park Cancer Charity and other charities, which will be held at Magna on September 23.
It includes a night of entertainment featuring 80s band Go West compered by Rotherham’s solicitor/author Steve Smith, plus a three-course dinner, raffle and auction and dancing until later.
Darren started the fundraising spectacular with Gail, after his father, John Baker, who was treated at Weston Park Hospital, died at the age of 65 following a battle with stomach cancer.
He said: “Each year, we were overwhelmed by the number of businesses that choose to join us for an evening of networking, dancing and a good night out in support of this fantastic local charity.
“There are just a few tables available for this year’s event and we hope with some great entertainment from The Bootleggers and Go West that people will join us for what we hope is another fruitful event.”
