BUSINESS people are being offered the chance to help make a difference to the lives of young people.

They are being invited to the Kick4Life Charity Ball, which aims to raise money for some of the world’s most disadvantaged children.

The event will be held at the Queens Hotel ballroom in Southsea on Friday, October 12, and will give local firms the chance to network, have fun and support the worthy cause.

 Money raised from the event will support the charity Kick4Life, which uses the power of sport to transform the lives of youngsters in Lesotho in southern Africa.

Lesotho has the world’s third highest number of HIV suffers, and more than 100,000 children have been orphaned due to the virus.

Event organiser Chris Bullock said: ‘This is a great opportunity for local businesses and groups of individuals to get together and enjoy a wonderful night out, while at the same time supporting the charity’s lifesaving work with young people. 

‘We might not have Brucie or Tess Daly, but we can promise a three course dinner, champagne reception, and entertainment including an auction and raffle – and a chance to sparkle on the dance floor.’

Tickets cost £35 and are available by calling Chris on 07507903504 or emailing chris@kick4life.org.
