A charity dance in aid of Hospices of Hope, which provides medical help and palliative care for terminally ill patients in Romania and other eastern European countries, is being held in Foxton at the end of the month.

Last year the Romanian government signed an agreement with Hospices of Hope for the charity to provide the Romanian health authorities with training for specialist care and medical treatment for those who are terminally ill.

The fundraising dance is on April 25 at Foxton Village Hall and will include a raffle and an auction of promises.

"We are asking people to support this function to help raise the funds that are urgently needed, particularly during this time of recession when charitable giving is reduced," said Tony Garrick one of the dance's organisers.

The dance starts at 7.30 and runs until 11.30pm and the theme will be an English and Scottish barn dance.

There will be a hot buffet and bar and tickets are £15 each which includes the buffet.

Tickets are available from Foxton Village Shop or from Tony and Carol Garrick at 29 Illingworth Way, Foxton, phone 01223 874257.
