A GALA ball and auction in aid of a children's cancer charity will take place at The Park Royal Hotel in Stretton on June 17.

Money raised from the charity auction, which has been organised by Rachel Dickinson from Auctioneers Wright Marshall in Knutsford, will be donated to The Joshua Tree.

The organisation currently supports around 60 families across Cheshire who are living with the 'life-changing experience of childhood cancer'.

The ball is being supported by members of the hotel's health suite team.

It will start at 7pm, with tickets priced at £25 for members and £35 for others.
