Last year's event raised more than £1,000 through tickets sales and prizes donated by businesses to the luxury raffle.

The ball will take place at Sidmouth's Harbour Hotel on Friday, May 17, commencing at 7.30pm.

There will be live music, canapés on the hotel terrace, raffle followed by a DJ and disco into the late evening.

Emily Monks, chairman of the school of governors, said: “It's a great community event with gives locals the chance to dress up and dance until late.

“With such drastic cuts in school funding, Sidbury are keen to use funds to create an outside garden with animals and the opportunity for children to grow their own vegetables and plants.

“The school has great grounds and are looking to utilise the space to enable more outdoor learning for children as well as encouraging sustainability.”

Tickets cost £26 per person.
