A charity dinner dance will be held at one of the region's top venues to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House
The event will take place on Friday 7 March at DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House in Congresbury where guests will enjoy a drinks reception, three-course dinner and live entertainment from local band Tardis.
The speaker for the evening will be comedy impressionist Darren Farley, a regular on Sky Sports' Soccer AM, and the evening will also feature a charity auction to raise even more funds for the charity which helps support those living with cancer in the local area.
Prizes available include a night's stay at the hotel including dinner and spa for two, a signed Manchester United football, a signed Mike Tyson boxing glove and a one-year membership to Kew Gardens.
Organiser Michael Dean said he hopes a significant amount will be raised on the night: "The charity ball at Cadbury House is set to be a great night. We've put a lot of work into finding the best live entertainment and amazing prizes for the charity auction so we hope we'll raise a good amount for a really worthwhile charity.
"Our aim is to raise £10,000 by August and with the help of various local businesses we have already raised a brilliant £4,500. This ball will help us on our way to achieving the goal.
"Cancer affects so many of us in some shape or form which is why it is so important to give back to charities like Macmillan which really make a difference to the lives of those suffering.
"The venue is fantastic and the food will be top-class so we're going to have lots of fun as well as supporting a great cause.
"I'd like to thank everyone at Cadbury House and Broad St Hair for sponsoring us as well as Crossville Motor Services, Aspect Printing, So Gorgeous Bridal Boutique, Yate Marks and Spencer and GBRS Recruitment."
DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House is a four-star boutique hotel in North Somerset with views across the Bristol Channel. With 132 luxury bedrooms, a spa, health club and Marco Pierre White restaurant on site guests to the ball will be able to make a weekend of it.
Cadbury House general manager Colin Badcock said: "We're really looking forward to the charity ball and hope the venue matched with some fabulous food and entertainment makes for a great evening for all."
Tickets to the ball are £40 per person with corporate sponsored tables of 10 available for £500.
