Mayor of Beverley Duncan Jack says tickets for his New Year’s Charity dance are selling fast. He also adds that anyone wanting to come should book soon to avoid disappointment.
Taking place on New Year’s Eve at the Beverley Memorial, the event will be used to raise money for local charities supported by the mayor.
Commenting on the event, Cllr Jack said;
“We thought there was a bit of the gap for this in the calendar for New Year’s Eve event. Something that was not too grand but was still an occasion.”
“Ticket sales for the event have been going really well. We only have a few remaining so I would urge anyone that is interested in coming to book them now.”
“While it will be a great night, those buying tickets will be supporting good causes here in Beverley.”
“Tickets are £40 per head and any profits from the evening will be divided equally between Dementia Friendly East Riding and the Cherry Tree Centre.”
“We have picked these two for this event as the CTC is doing superb work in the community. They are now also reaching to younger people on Swinemoor.”
“Dementia Friendly is also another great charity. Dementia is something that is striking home with everyone. More and more people are suffering from the disease its self and it also has an impact on those who are supporting those who suffer from it.”
“Dementia is certainly something that is touching many families in the area now with an ageing population.”

“So I would like to urge residents to join me and put on their glad rags and dress to impress.”
“May I also take this opportunity to wish all the residents on behalf of everyone at Beverley Town Council a merry Christmas and prosperous new year.”
Taking place on 31 December, doors open 8.00pm and carriages at 12.30am. Tables of up to 10 are available and smaller parties can be teamed for the event.
