Charity masquerade ball planned to raise money for school destroyed by cyclone

Damage caused by the cyclone.

A charity masquerade ball will take place next month to raise money for an African school hit by a cyclone.

The event will be held at the Holiday Inn Scotch Corner on Friday, April 3.

It is being organised by Mandy Matika, from Arthur Caygill Cycles in Richmond.

The event will raise money for the Champions International Pre School, in Beira, Mozambique.

Last March, the school was hit by Cycline Idai in March which pulled the roof of and caused other major damage.

The cycle shop has already raised more than £800 towards the repairs with a Christmas raffle, but the work will cost at least $6,500.

“They are currently renting a building but don’t have anything in it really,” added Mandy.

Tickets for the ball, including a glass of a fizz, two-course meal and entertainment,  cost £40.

To book, call Mandy on 01748 825469.
