In photos: VIPs join 250 people at cancer charity's ball near Burnham

Over 250 people - including two VIPs - attended a fun-filled ball near Burnham-On-Sea on Saturday evening (December 6th) to raise funds for a breast cancer support charity.

The annual Somerset Breakthrough Breast Cancer Ball, held at the Batch Country House in Lympsham, had a circus theme this year with the name 'Night At The Big Top'.

Many of the guests attended in their own fun-themed costumes. In addition to a fire throwing demonstration, there was a pole fitness show from Pole Essence, pictured right, a dance act from Burnham's DanceFit Studio, and a circus routine from Paulos Circus.

Several VIP guests were among the audience, including the former athlete Donna Fraser, a four-time Olympian and double World Championship medallist.

Donna has herself beaten Breast Cancer after having a mastectomy. She told "I'm delighted to be supporting such a special cause. It is lovely to see so many people here this evening, all coming together to support the charity. As a Breast Cancer survivor myself, I very much appreciate the work that that the charity does."

Richard Caddell, from TV's Sooty and Sweep Show, was also in the audience and said he was keen to be supporting such a worthwhile cause.

Holly Macbeth, from Breakthrough Breast Cancer Somerset, said the evening had been a huge success. "We are delighted with how it's gone and thank everyone for their huge support this evening."
