THOSE attending the Evening Star Press Ball will enter a mystical land of magic and surprises.

The Starry Potter themed event will see participants whisked away to an enchanting world of festivities, fun and most importantly fundraising.

The tickets are booked and all that is needed now are the passports and that's where Five Castle's Press have stepped in.

The Ipswich company have printed a passport for all 320 guests attending the event on Friday, June 25.

The glossy programmes will be sent to guests prior to the evening and include a welcome from Star editor, Nigel Pickover and an itinerary of the ball.

They have been donated free of charge by Five Castle's and serve as a handy souvenir of the event.

"These children really need to get mobile help to get them into the community.

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.

Ben Collins, organiser of the Press Ball, said: "Everybody coming gets a passport and it outlines almost everything about the night but we are keeping a few big surprises back.

"We are incredibly grateful to the team at Five Castles' for their help in printing the passports. They look fantastic and every guest will be even more excited as the night gets closer once they read their passport."
