A glittering charity ball is taking place to raise cash for two cancer charities.

The Equinox ball that will raise cash for Firefly and Cancer Research UK takes place tomorrow on Doncaster Deaf School.

The whole event is being organised by Doncaster business people Sarah and Paul Mullen whose mum used Firefly before she passed away last year.

More than 350 people will be attending the ball that will be hosted by Capital FM breakfast show DJs JOJO and Danny.

A number of exclusive auction prizes will be on offer at the sold out event including holidays.

Denise Dunn’s daughter Gemma, who is continuing to run Firefly with the support of her family said: “We are hoping this will be an annual event.

“It’s great to celebrate the collaboration between cancer research and ourselves.

“Paul and Sarah have done a fantastic job of organising the event.”

Denise Dunn the woman behind Firefly, lost her long battle with cancer in March but her family have vowed to continue her charity legacy.

Firefly provide free shuttle bus service to hospitals for patients and also raise awareness of the condition.

The unique charity has become a lifeline to patients.
