A Calverton resident is organising a charity ball, in conjunction with Nottingham Hospitals Charity, to raise money to support the care of cancer patients at Nottingham City Hospital.

It is one of the five divisions that the hospital is made up of and covers the specialities of palliative care, plastics, thoracics, burns, renal, urology haematology, oncology and transplant, with a specialist receiving unit where sick patients are admitted into hospital.
Karine told the Calverton Local News: “There are 600 nurses working within the division who are highly skilled and specialists in their areas of work.
“In the last 12 months we have discharged 51, 915 patients that have been seen as inpatients and seen 158,308 patients in outpatient areas.”
The charity ball will take place on Saturday 8th September at Goosedale Conference & Banqueting, Goosedale Lane, Papplewick, Nottingham, NG6 8UN and is being organised in conjunction with Nottingham Hospitals Charity.
The charity raises money to make a difference to patient care through support patients and relatives, research and training.
Tickets are £49 each and include a glass of fizz on arrival, a three-course meal and dancing to the Strange Band.
Karine added: “We welcome everybody to the event including staff, patients, family and the public. Please join us for what promises to be a wonderful evening.
