Tara Lane from Belfast is holding her first fundraising ball to raise money for the CLIC Sargent Northern Ireland Homes from Home Appeal.
The event will feature live music from local band Doghouse Ska, the chance to have some fun with friends and to capture memories of the night with a photo booth.
Tara says: “I’m really proud to be doing my bit to help the charity. This is the first time I have organised a fundraiser and although it is daunting I have had so much help from colleagues, friends and family and I know it is going to be worth it!
I know the difference CLIC Sargent makes to their lives of children and young people with cancer and their families and especially the difference both Homes from Home in Belfast are going to make to those families who have to travel a long way to get their child treatment. Everyone is welcome; it is going to be a great night out which we hope will raise lots of money!”
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Christine McClune said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Tara is organising this wonderful event to raise money for the Appeal.
"We really appreciate the hard work and generosity that she is putting into raising money for the charity – every penny raised will help provide vital support for children and young people with cancer, and their families.”
