Now the firm’s managing director Malcolm Hall has told Chad that tickets are selling well for next year’s event, while a number of sponsors are also on board.

Next year’s ball - organised in partnership with Champions (UK) plc - takes place at the complex on 9th May and will be hosted by former Mansfield Town, Nottingham Forest, Everton and Leeds striker Duncan McKenzie.

The firm’s fundraising drive has included a number of events as part of its bid to raise £40,000 to buy new equipment for the Nottingham Road school, which caters for youngsters with special educational needs.
