AN ENCHANTED ball fundraiser is to be held at a Birstwith School to raise money for Yorkshire Cancer Research.

The PTA committee at Belmont Grosvenor School hope to raise £15,000 at the event on Saturday, July 2.

There will be a champagne reception, the Dragon Sax quartet and an Auction of Experiences. Money raised will be split between the school’s PTA and Yorkshire Cancer Research.

Julia King, chair of the PTA Committee, said: “I am a former Macmillan nurse and worked closely with cancer patients so we were committed to supporting a cancer charity this year.

All of us will undoubtedly be touched by cancer at some point in our lives and raising valuable funds for research by doctors and scientists in Yorkshire is a hugely positive way to help.”
