A silent auction will be among the entertainment at a big Autumn Gala charity dinner at Hintlesham Hall on Friday, October 12.

The event, organised by independent celebrant Sharon Topple, hopes to raise as much money as possible for St Elizabeth Hospice.

The evening’s entertainment will also include a delicious three-course meal, a charity prize draw, a casino area, live music and a fireworks display.

All proceeds for the event will be going to Christine Wise who has been tirelessly fund-raising for the hospice since the death of her husband Andy five years ago.

Mrs Wise has raised more than £45,000 for the hospice so far - and hopes Friday’s gala will add another big chunk of cash to the campaign.

The event starts at 7pm with last drinks at around midnight.
