People still have time to get their tickets for a charity ball and awards ceremony in Shrewsbury – but they will have to be quick.

The Climbing Out Charity Ball and Awards is being held at Shrewsbury Town Football Club on June 24, with all proceeds helping the charity to continue its work to change the lives of young people.

The event will be an emotional and inspiring evening, with youngsters who have been supported by the charity being given awards for their bravery and commitment to recovering from life-changing injuries or illness.

There will also be a three-course meal and entertainment provide by the band, Sonic Boom, as well as a promise auction.

Kelda Wood, of Climbing Out, said the event, which is sponsored by taxi firm Go Carz, was sure to be a great night.

She said: “Tickets have gone well but we do still have some available by emailing keldawood@climbingout.org.uk or by visiting our website at www.climbingout.org.uk

“It is a very important night for us and for the young people we help. Awards will be presented on the night to youngsters who have been involved in the Climbing Out programmes and inspired others with what they have achieved.

“We are hoping to make it a great night out and also an inspiration for those attending.”

More than 200 young people from across the country have been on Climbing Out courses and families and friends have already been nominating their choices for awards.

The categories include: the Outstanding Achievement Award, Fundraiser of the Year and the Overcoming Adversity Award.
