GET your dancing shoes ready – the most glamorous event in the St Richard’s Hospice calendar is now just weeks away.

 This year’s Snowdrop Ball will be held at Sixways Stadium in Hindlip, near Worcester, on Saturday, November 25.

 Guests will be treated to some special St Richard’s hospitality – starting with welcome drinks, followed by a three-course meal and live music from Soul Trader.

 There will also be a grand auction, raffle, casino, photo booth and disco for party-goers to dance the night away – while raising money for St Richard’s.

Ria Simons, hospice fundraiser, said: “We are so excited for this year’s Snowdrop Ball. It is always a fabulous night out – and the perfect excuse for guests to get dressed up and into the festive


 “We’re looking forward to welcoming supporters who have been before and new guests too – all while raising money for the hospice’s compassionate care to patients, their loved ones and bereaved people.

 “Thank you to our sponsors Britannia Bennetts of Malvern and Shrubbery Dental Practice, and to everyone who has generously donated prizes for the raffle and auction. Here’s to a great night!”

 Last year’s glittering celebration saw 300 guests enjoy the festivities, raising more than £26,000 for the hospice’s free, specialist care, for people across Worcestershire.

 The evening begins from 7pm and tickets are priced at £55. To reserve tickets contact Ria Simons, on 01905 763963 or email
