A Christmas ball is being held in memory of a little girl who lost her battle with cancer as part of an awareness raising campaign.

Chelsea Knighton lost her brave fight with rare childhood cancer neuroblastoma in August 2009 aged just three.

Her family set up the Chelsea’s Angels charity to help children diagnosed with the condition and other rare cancers.

Tickets are now on sale for The Chelsea’s Angels Winter Wonderland Christmas Ball, which takes place at Brampton Grange, near Northampton, on Saturday, December 7, during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

Chelsea’s mum Emma Knighton, co-founder of the Irthlingborough-based charity, said: “Everyone is invited.

“It promises to be a fun evening with lots of entertainment planned but there will also be a serious message.

“The money raised will enable us to continue to support children with cancer and their parents who go through the most unimaginable, heart-breaking journey with their battles against the condition.”

Tickets for the formal black tie evening cost £35.

The event starts at 6pm and there will be a three-course meal as well as entertainment, including a magician, disco and live music.

Group bookings are welcome.
