Tickets are now on sale for the Team Verrico’s Annual Ball that will take place on June 15 at The Baths Hall, Scunthorpe.

The event is a chance for people to let their hair down and to celebrate the charity’s achievements over the last year and look forward to the year ahead.

One of those organising the event is Cheryl Moorhouse, owner of well-known Epworth business Metres to Miles. She said “The Team Verrico Annual Charity Ball is a highlight of my social calendar. Not just because I get to swap my trainers for heels, but because I love seeing everyone come together in one room for one night for one purpose - to support this local charity.

“The evening showcases what the charity has achieved so far and what it is aiming to achieve going forward. It epitomises the grace and gratitude shown by many on every level and I feel privileged to be part of this amazing event and part of this humble team. It's going to be an electric, fun-packed evening and I can't wait to get my dancing shoes on!”

Team Verrico hosts the annual ball every year and this year’s event is shaping up to be one of the best yet.

Team Verrico was founded in 2013 by Paul Verrico, after he lost his wife Anna to triple negative breast cancer, at the age of 36. Since then the charity has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds and impacted the lives of many people with cancer and their families.

The charity raises money to support research into new treatments and ways of diagnosing responses to treatment of cancer, especially triple negative breast cancer, as well as supporting research into the challenges faced by long term survivors of the disease as a result of the physical and psychological consequences of the diagnosis and treatments.

The charity also works tirelessly o promote and protect the physical and mental health of sufferers and their families through the provision of financial assistance, support and practical advice.

Guest can arrive at the event from 6.30pm for a 7pm start.

The dress code is black tie.

Tickets are £42

Anyone who books a full table (Tables of eight and ten people are available) before the end of April gets free bottle of bubbly.
