The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation will be hosting its annual ball at the Deer Park Hotel in April.

The aim of the event is to raise money to help fund and organise weddings for terminally ill people.

Despite having to battle a terminal illness herself, Sidmouth-born Naomi Thomas set up the charity to help those with terminal illnesses have their dream wedding.

Frances Keene, who is helping to organise the event, said: “Naomi found out she had secondary breast cancer just six days after giving birth to their son. Naomi and Graham, her husband, work really hard for this amazing charity and it was such a honour to be asked to work in their wedding boutique, which is in Marsh Barton trading estate Exeter, where we sell donated wedding dresses to help fund the charity.”
