The fiancee of a man who died of cancer is appealing for help in finding a charm.
Amy Louise Brocklehurst-Ball lost the silver Thomas Sabo charm of a pistol on Saturday morning in Oakham. She said the charm was sentimental because it is connected to her fiancee Richard, who died last month.
Amy is also hoping to raise £5,000 for the Lymphoma Association and Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research by holding a ball on November 30 at Brooksby Hall, near Melton.
Richard, who was well-known for 13 years’ service to his family’s business Portess of Oakham, died after a five year battle with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma aged 29.
Amy, of Oakham, has teamed up with sister Laura-Ann and friend Jess Turrill to organise the event and the team have chosen the ball’s theme based on Richard’s love of James Bond.
The event will run from 7pm and tickets, costing £35, will include arrival drink, hot buffet and dessert. There will also be live music, a raffle and an auction.
Amy is looking for local businesses to come forward to donate raffle and auction prizes.
Tickets will go on sale this Friday and can be purchased from Portess in Nottingham Street, Melton, and Oakham.
For tickets or if you have found the charm, e-mail Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org
