As well as raising awareness, the ball will also help raise funds for the Darbyshire Breast Cancer Foundation, a non-profit organisation that actively promotes all efforts aimed at further understanding, treating and curing such a debilitating disease like breast cancer.

Lisa Darbyshire is one of the people organising the event. The former Netherfield resident, is using the town’s Menus4Venues catering firm to provide food and drink at the event.

She said: I am really looking forward to this amazing event. To be held in the prestigious Nottingham Council House and opened by the Lord Mayor, could our guests be made to feel any more special? Yes, they can! To be entertained by the greatly talented Highly Strung String Quartet and the smooth sound of Swing When You’re Blue, guests will also enjoy a most delicious three-course meal from Menus 4 Venues.

“But let’s not forget the importance of the evening: over 30% of the women in the UK do not go for breast screening. It is crucial that they do as early detection of breast cancer has been proven to save women’s lives. Innovative technology that has been developed by the partners of DBCF are making the difference in breast cancer screening and detection.
