Spooktacular Halloween Ball to raise funds for Cancer and Wellbeing centre

What a night for a fright – celebrate Halloween in style at Over and Above’s Spooktacular Charity Halloween Ball this October.

This year’s ball is taking place at the Royal and Fortescue Hotel in Barnstaple on Saturday 28th October at 7pm. The evening includes a delicious three-course meal, which includes a carvery and trio of desserts, DJ and disco, an auction and lots of fun.

Julie Whitton, fundraising officer, said: “We can’t wait for our popular Halloween Ball. It gives us all a great opportunity to dress to impress with a subtly spooky twist. Fancy dress is encouraged and it would be great to see some spooktacular costumes at the event. Whether you want to be glam or ghoulish, celebrate Halloween with us to raise funds for our new Cancer and Wellbeing Centre Appeal.”

Tickets are just £35 and can be purchased by visiting eventbrite or through the Over and Above fundraising team on 01271 311772 or email ndht.charity@nhs.net.

The funds raised from this event will be used to support the hospital charity’s new appeal. Over and Above is aiming to raise £1.5million to build a Cancer and Wellbeing Centre at North Devon District Hospital. The centre will be a dedicated space available to anyone affected by cancer and other illnesses at any stage of their illness, offering a wide range of information and support services, all within a comfortable and welcoming environment. The centre will also include a relatives’ accommodation wing for family and other loved ones.
