THE mayor of Lowestoft this week unveiled plans for a 'great night' of entertainment – and called on people across Waveney to help make it a big success.
The 2013 Mayor's Ball takes place at the Hotel Victoria at Kirkley Cliff in Lowestoft from 7pm on Friday, March 15, with the aim of raising much-needed funds for injured servicemen and women.
After the previous mayor Tod Sullivan revived the event last year, his successor Nick Webb is encouraging everyone to join him for an evening of music and dance in aid of his chosen charity Help for Heroes.
And with tickets already selling fast, Mr Webb said: 'It's going to be a great night. I hope everyone comes and gets behind this event and supports Help for Heroes who will ultimately be the winners.'
Guests at the ball will be served drinks on arrival and will then enjoy a three-course meal. There will also be a raffle and entertainment throughout the evening with music from the Norwich-based Lee Vasey Band and a disco sponsored by Soundraisers of Lowestoft.
