A GLITZY ball, billed as Yorkshire’s finest charity event, takes place tomorrow to boost the coffers of Calderdale charities.

Since its launch in March, the location for the Community Foundation for Calderdale’s Imaginarium Ball has been top secret.

But it can now be revealed as the disused weavers’ shed in Shaw Lodge Mills, near the Shay.

The sell-out event will celebrate the foundation’s 20th anniversary as well as the fifth birthday of their Imaginarium partner, party planners Prego Events.

Mark Fleetwood, business development manager for the foundation, said: “It’s to raise as much money and attention as possible for the amazing local community and charitable groups that we’re so blessed with in Calderdale, their many hard-working volunteers and workers and the people who need them and benefit from them.

“Supporting these community heroes is why the foundation exists.”
