I'm pleased to announce that there are no tickets left for the Run Geordie Run "Around The World" Ball. The fundraiser, in aid of The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and The Children's Foundation, will take place at The Biscuit Factory in Newcastle on Saturday October 10th 2015 from 6pm.

We are honoured to have as our special guests, Lady Elsie Robson and Dr Martin Ward-Platt from the charities.

The ball will be hosted by BBC Radio Newcastle's Sony Gold Award winning duo Gary and Lisa and musical entertainment will be provided by the superb party band; "Tiny Afro". There will be the usual host of games, raffles and auctions. Although many of them with a twist and not your usual charity ball fare. Previous attendees will know that the quality of the food at The Biscuit Factory is second to none and we have created a unique "Around The World" themed menu.

The charity fund is currently hurtling towards the quarter of a million pound mark. It will be interesting to see how close we can get to it on the evening of the Around The World Ball.

The last Run Geordie Run charity ball in 2011 was a complete sell out and I can't thank everyone enough for making this one a success too. If you're lucky enough to have a ticket, I'll see you next week for a fun filled evening of fundraising.
