A CHARITY ball to be held in Ipswich next month is set to raise money to support families of those with Down's Syndrome.

The charity, Local Opportunities and Awareness of Down's Syndrome (LOADS), was set up five years and works with hospitals, doctors and health visitors to support and educate anyone who is or may be about to have a child with Down's Syndrome.

Ipswich Building Society is sponsoring the charity ball on Friday, June 13, in Trinity Park.

The charity's work starts in the hospital providing support and information packs. It also has a team of coordinators throughout the region and organises events and forums enabling parents and carers to meet and discuss valuable information gained from their own experiences.

The event costs £55 per person, which includes a welcome drink, three-course meal with wine and an evening of entertainment, including Jason Wood, Hula Groove soul and jazz band and a surprise celebrity singing act.

A few tables are still available. Tickets can be purchased by contacting Millriver Publicity on 01473 410278 or LOADS 01473 430434 or 07904 196812.
