The programme for an entertaining evening includes a three-course meal with glass of wine, reception drinks, evening entertainment and disco until late, a visit from Santa Claus, grand Christmas prize draw and a special Christmas market.


Pop 4 Diabetes is a non-profit fundraising organisation that works hard to raise funds for continuing research into finding a cure for type 1 diabetes.

Iris Board, Pop 4 Diabetes founder, said: “We look forward to seeing you all again and raising those all-important funds for medical research.

“We are now in the sixteenth year of our not-for-profit fundraising organisation, which raises funds for diabetes research through music and events.

“Our dream would be to have a world without diabetes, but until then we want to help make the lives of those living with it easier.

“We usually hold our Annual Ball in October so this is our first Christmas event and really hope it works well so we can make it permanent.

“November is Diabetes Month with the 14th being World Diabetes Day, so we have booked our event for Saturday, 19th November.”

“The Pre-Christmas Winter Ball is a great night out while helping a great cause! DRWF are the main charity for the Ball this year.”
