There are still tickets for the grand finale of the Gusher’s year of fundraising in aid of The Jago Worrall Foundation.

There is still chance to book your tickets for our Festive Charity Gala at Fawsley Hall on November 15.

The event aims to raise money for two-year-old Jago Worrall, from Welton, who was left severely brain-damaged after an accident last year in which he nearly drowned in the pond at the family home.

Tickets now cost £55 per person, and if you book a table of 10 you only have to pay for nine.

The gala will take place in the Knightly Suite, arrival from 7pm and includes a welcome drink, four-course festive menu, live dancing to the band Mister P and an auction with the chance to bid on an exclusive range of sporting and showbiz memorabilia.

There are some fantastic raffle and auction prizes up for grabs on the night, including aRadial skincare hamper worth more than £800; a Nip + Fab Beauty Products Hamper; Alcohol Hamper (including Bombay Sapphire Gin, Grey Goose Vodka and Dewar’s Whisky); Children’s Hamper (including Disney blu-rays and DVDs, puzzles, DS game and Cars slippers.

Other prizes include a meal and overnight stay for two at The Olde Coachhouse in Ashby St Ledgers, spa day for two at Hellidon Lakes Hotel and dinner, bed and breakfast plus round of golf for two at Staverton Park Hotel.

And with The Hobbit 2 - The Desolation of Smaug soon to hit the big screen, our auction prize of a limited-edition Hobbit rucksack packed full of film memorabilia, is sure to be in demand on the night. It contains pewter coasters, T-shirts, caps, poster, backgammon game, pen, badges and blu-ray.

There is also the option of accommodation on the night at a specially reduced rate of £150 per room (based on two people sharing and to include a full English breakfast.) Standard rate is normally £250. To book tickets before they’re gone, call the special Daventry Express ticket hotline on 01327 708288 Monday to Friday between 9am and 5.30pm.
