The event, just days before the Suffolk Show on Thursday, June 6, and Friday, June 7, is intended to be a showpiece for locally produced food and produce. The menu will feature locally-produced trout, duck, vegetables, strawberries and ice cream.

Raffle prizes include a generous selection of champagne, golf breaks, weekend breaks plus dining out specials.

Chair of the ball, Bee Kemball, said: "It is our intention to raise in excess of £10,000 from the evening and fund raising activities."

Christopher Bushby, SAA executive director, said: "One in three people are touched by cancer in their life and the association is pleased that we can provide the facilities for this sort of ball."

Tickets priced at £40 per person for a table of 10 are reported to be going fast, further details on 01473 726847.,
