A SOUTHAMPTON charity will be hosting a glitzy ball later this year to raise money to fight diabetes.

The Sugarfall Ball will be held at Chilworth Manor Hotel on Friday, October 3.

Sugarfall was set up in 2012 as part of Southampton Hospital Charity, to battle diabetes through purchasing specialist equipment and educational resources.

Guests at the ball can enjoy a three-course dinner, dancing, a disco and a raffle.

Tickets cost £50 each, or £450 for a table of ten, and for more details call 023 8120 3761 or email Sugarfall@ uhs.nhs.uk.
