Sisters’ ball boosts coffers of hospices

Sisters Denise James and Elaine Mason and four friends raised £2100 for Ashgate Hospice and Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice after organising a ball at the Proact Stadium, Chesterfield.

Their Big Fat Red Sports Ball saw 200 people donning red, white and blue and a winter Olympian in attendance - Ellie Koyander from Tideswell, the British No 1. Mogul Skier and a torchbearer for the Olympics.

Proceeds have recently been handed over to representatives of both hospices.

Anyone who attended the ball, which was held in July, who wishes to purchase a DVD of the evening, can contact Denise or Elaine on (01246) 252311.
