Glamorous gowns have poured into a college for adults with learning disabilities following an appeal to help make it the centre’s first prom a night to remember.

A total of 66 prom dresses are hanging up ready for the night but now it is time to ask for suits, jackets and ties for men, particularly in larger sizes.

Facet manager Kris Harrold and the team at Marwick Road are rolling out the red carpet next month and are still looking for help from local people to make the event a success.

Mr Harrold said: “We are so grateful for the support. We’ve had room decorations, somebody who specialises in chair covers, a DJ with a light show on the walls and a fun photo booth.

“We still need menswear and prom dresses in larger sizes. The prom is a fantastic opportunity, not only for the students which attend FACET, but also opening up the event to anyone else that would like to join us for what should be a night to remember.

“We want it to have a real glamour feel to it with a red carpet entrance, professional photographers, a DJ with a state of the art disco a bubble machine dance floor and confetti cannons.”

There will be a full licenced bar and a s hog roast which is included in the price of the ticket.
