A CHARITABLE Prosecco afternoon for the ladies in Alloa had to be postponed due to Covid-19.

The fun-filled fundraiser was due to go ahead at Alloa's Dunmar House next month.

However, organiser Elle Adams last week announced that due to coronavirus, the event unfortunately had to be postponed to next year.

The ladies' day was due to raise funds for Cancer Research UK and the Stroke Association, causes close to the heart of the woman who recently moved to Clackmannan.

Elle previously told the Advertiser how she suddenly lost her grandmother due to undiagnosed pancreatic cancer, which had led to a stroke in September 2019.

The tragedy inspired Elle to learn more about the disease which affects a large gland that is part of the digestive system.

When it came to stroke, Elle wanted to support the hard work of the association when it comes to helping those who do wake up following a brain attack.

The fundraising Prosecco afternoon will go ahead on May 8 in 2021 following the announcement.

Most businesses that provided raffle prizes agreed to these being used next year, with thanks from Elle.

She also confirmed that the majority of stallholders are still attending the reorganised event.

Elle said: "Unfortunately the ladies' day this year had to be postponed due to Covid-19.

"This is not a decision that was made lightly, but to ensure we can have a fun-filled afternoon and to keep everyone safe this is the best measure.

"However, the new date is May 8, 2021, and I am looking forward to making this event bigger and better. Ticket and raffles are still on sale from now until the event."

Tickets are £33 and include a large bottle of Prosecco each, photographer on arrival, a candy bar, a selfie stand, various food, a disco and a donation to the two good causes.

Elle's organising efforts are being supported by local event planner Lauren Urquhart of Event on Trend.
