Tickets have gone on sale for Southern Area Hospice’s annual gala ball.

The event, with the theme ‘Glitz and Glam’, will take place at the Canal Court Hotel, Newry, on Friday, March 6.

It will begin with a champagne reception, followed by a five-course meal, auction and raffle. Prizes include a signed, framed British and Irish Lions rugby jersey from the 2013 Australian Tour, donated by David Buchanan.

Patrons can then dance the night away to live music by local band ‘The Rockits’.

All proceeds will go to the Southern Area Hospice which is celebrating 25 years of hospice care.

Geraldine Loughran, chairperson of the hospice dance committee, “It will be a very special evening and it is always wonderful to see the fantastic show of support from our local community.”

Tickets cost £50 and are available from hospice reception or committee members.
