Bond night coming to Ipswich

Come dressed to kill and prepare to be shaken and stirred - as a town prepares to host a fun-filled casino night.

IPSWICH: Come dressed to kill and prepare to be shaken and stirred - as a town prepares to host a fun-filled casino night.

Although the night doesn't come From Russia with Love, it does intend to dazzle and has been inspired by infamous gambler James Bond.

The Casino Royale themed evening of cocktails and fine-dining has been organised by Ipswich Town Community Trust and will feature a performance from Frisky Band.

As well as a fancy four course meal and canap�s, the �500-a-table affair is also set to include an Auction of Promises.

Items to be auctioned off will include an executive box at an Ipswich Town home game, a signed and framed England shirt and a champagne dinner at Hintlesham Hall.

GoldenEye bidders will also have the opportunity to win a night with dinner at the Swan Hotel in Southwold and a weekend away at a top UK hotel.

Terry Baxter, chief executive of the trust, said: “This is the first fundraising ball that the trust has held and we're really delighted to have the support of one of our key sponsors - the Ramada Hotel.

“It looks set to be a really exciting night and it gives the women the opportunity to dress up glamorously and the men get the opportunity to feel like Sean Connery or if you're young enough to feel like Daniel Craig”

The trust works to provide the community with opportunities to participate in a wide variety of sporting and educational activities.

Mr Baxter later added: “We use the powerful medium of sport to raise levels of educational achievement, self-belief, and to encourage widespread participation in a healthy active lifestyle, with core programmes focusing on football.
