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.
Julie Redfern, one of the organisers, said: "Help for Heroes is a charity that all of our committee feel strongly about as do many members of the public. With the deaths of a number of troops who were either based or lived locally it feels so much more personal
