A disco and singer will take guests on into the evening, as well as an Elvis Presley tribute act.

Clare Holder, who is helping to organise the event after her friends Michelle and Wayne Southall lost their daughter to leukaemia, said: “I recently visited the Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham and it really is a truly wonderful facility helping families through some incredibly difficult times.

“This is a charity that is very close to Michelle, Wayne and their families and we all wish that you help and support us with what promises to be a wonderful, day and evening.”
