A STUNNING masked ball is being organised to raise money for the country's soldiers and their families.
With increasing numbers of casualties from the war in Afghanistan, the need for general public to help those affected grows with it.
With this in mind, a themed ball has been organised to raise money for the Help for Heroes appeal.
"Of course the relevance is now more apparent than ever, with the deaths of a number of troops who were either based or lived locally," said one of the organisers.
