Great Dunmow’s very own angel will be handing money raised by a Christmas Dinner and Dance to local causes.

Kay Puddick organised a Summer Ball earlier in the year and through popular demand has decided to put another on for the festive season.

Guests at the event – on Saturday, December 7 – will be treated to a four-course meal and then they can dance to the music provided by the DJ, .

Kay, of High Stile, also has some surprises up her sleeve to keep everyone entertained.

The mother-of-one said: “I want everybody to come down and support our community. It will be a great event for office Christmas parties, or even if there is only a couple of you, we have space for you.”

In June Kay organised a summer ball to raise money for Helen Rollason Cancer Charity and the British Heart Foundation.

Helen Rollason is a cause very close to her heart as she was diagnosed with cancer in 2000 and since then has had both her breasts removed and gone under the knife 43 times.

For the Christmas Dinner and Dance Kay has decided to donate the money back into the community.

She said: “All the money we make will be for the town. I fell in love with Dunmow as soon as I moved here and I want to do something to help.

“If somebody comes to me and says ‘I need some money for a new fridge’ I will do what I can. Even if we make a small donation it all matters.”

Tickets cost £40 and the ball will be held at Foakes Hall, from 7pm.

A booking form needs to be requested from Kay. Call 07970 498950 or e-mail
