Vicky and Tony Blood are hosting the ball at the Marriott Hotel in Peterborough on Saturday, July 4.

Their four year-old son Ashton was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate and also has a rare genetic disorder.

With this in mind, the couple is raising money for CLAPA (cleft lip and palate association), Unique (charity for rare genetic disorders) and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

There will be a live band and disco, silent auction, casino tables and photographer. Dress code is black tie and ball gown.

Tickets are £40 per person or a table to seat 10 people is £350, to include a three course meal.

If there are any companies who are able to donate a product or service to the auction table, or to get hold of a ticket, call Tony on 07967 563132 or 07557 411693. Alternatively, e-mail
