So far the event has raised more than £160,000 and with top raffle and auction prizes, organisers hope to raise at least £20,000 this year.

Miriam Harrup, communications and community manager for the Ipswich and Norwich Co-op said: "We are delighted to join with the Evening Star in raising money for DCE.

"The charity helps many local children and we hope that this year's Press Ball is a great success, enabling them to continue their excellent work."

The prize includes an England supporter's kit to help you get behind the national team and provide some added magic.

And with the Starry Potter theme of the Press Ball there should also be some magic on the night.

Other raffle prizes include a Cadillac for a night with champagne, £100 of Girls Love Roses vouchers, dinner for two at Scotts and gym membership.

nTickets for the ball, which is being held at the County Hotel, Copdock have now sold out but donations to the cause can still be made.
