Sharon said: “The ball will be hosted by [drag queen] Diana DoGood. We have Amy D singing, a DJ, auction, raffle and a few games. It will be a fun night but will help a lot of people.”

The friends have also organised a fundraising gig on Saturday, October 21st, from 7-30pm at The Electric Circus in Bank Parade, Burnley, while Sharon helps facilitate Pendleside Hospice’s Bereaved by Suicide Group, which runs on the third Monday of every month, from 5-7pm.
