The 12th Holly Ball is being organised by the Falmouth and Penryn fundraising group for Marie Curie next month.

Guests at Penmorvah Manor Hotel, Budock Water, can enjoy a buffet dinner at 7pm for £40 a person and live music by Callum Flew and a disco will start at 9pm, on Friday, December 6.

Community fundraiser Lynda Thomas said: “Christmas is a very special time of year and whilst families are celebrating the Marie Curie nurses will be caring for terminally ill patients and their families in their own homes. This is a fantastic Black Tie event, the perfect way to make the most of this magical time of year and make a contribution to something that touches everyone.”

For those wishing to join the evening for the ball from 9pm onwards, tickets are £10.

The ball is in its 12th year and has support from One Stop Printers in Truro, Barclays Bank and The Penmorvah Manor Hotel.
