The bash will be held at the Deer Park Hotel on Saturday, March 12, from 6pm.

A Honiton family is holding a charity ball next month to raise money for the Wedding Wishing Well Foundation.

Fran Keen will host the ball on Saturday, March 12, from 6pm, at the Deer Park Hotel in Honiton to raise money for the organisation, which organises and funds weddings for terminally ill people.

Mum-of-two Fran said: “One of our daughter’s school friends lost his mum to cancer last year and they were able to get married before she lost her life thanks to the Wedding Wishing Well Foundation. The charity that was able to help them achieve their wedding wishes was televised on the ITV programme Surprise Surprise with Holly Willoughby.

“I lost my dad 13 years ago to this dreadful disease and felt it was something I could help with.”

Tickets to the ball cost £40, and all attendees will be treated to a three-course meal and drink on arrival.

They can also try their hand at a casino table and an auction, with a round of golf for four up for grabs courtesy of Honiton Golf Club, and an evening meal and overnight stay for two at the Deer Park Hotel. The dress code for the ball is black tie for gentlemen and posh frocks for ladies.

To secure tickets, call Steve Keen on 07976 200520.
