DANCERS are urged to take to the floor for a festive ball in aid of worthy causes.

The Charity Ball, which is being organised by Love Southsea, will be held at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard on December 3.

The Dockyard’s Boathouse No. 7 function venue will be transformed into a ballroom for an evening of dance.

Guests will also be treated to cocktails, a Christmas dinner and wine followed by live music, a casino and an auction.

Proceeds from the ball will go towards the Falklands Veterans Foundation (FVF) to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Falklands conflict.

Last year’s bash raised over £6,500 for the FVF, the first UK-based charity for Falklands veterans and their immediate families, and Help for Heroes.

Tickets cost £60 a head for tables of ten.
