DALMELLINGTON'S Lorna Dempsey is making final preparation for the 11th Butterfly Ball in aid of Cancer Research UK.

This year's theme is Bollywood for the event, which takes place in the Princess Royal Suite at Ayr Racecourse on Saturday, April 28, with doors opening at 6pm.

Lorna said: "This is our 11th Ball, which will add to the £375,000 already raised by our supporters and donated to Cancer Research UK since 2006.

"Although it is a night of Bollywood glamour, guests are not required to come in a costume for the theme — they can, however, dress for fun."

During the evening, the draw will take place for the Butterfly Ball 2018 Grand Raffle, with several prizes including a golf day, clothing voucher, hair hamper and more.
