A Valentine’s Dinner Dance held at the Palace Hotel, in Douglas, raised more than £3,000 for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

Everyone enjoyed a romantically themed evening, enhanced by a sumptuous three-course dinner, a little bit of magic from Chris Burns and great music – thanks to DJ Dave Kelly who kept guests dancing until 1am.

Breakthrough event organiser Sandy Denning thanked everyone who supported Saturday’s event, including sponsor Moore Stephens and those who donated raffle prizes.

Meanwhile, tickets are on sale for a Neil Diamond tribute act billed as being one of the best in the UK. Mike Leigh’s Diamond Nights will perform at Peel Centenary Centre at 8pm on Saturday, March 22.

Thanks to sponsor 4Hire, all the proceeds will be going straight to the charity.

It will feature the favourites from this popular American performer, from the powerful and uplifting songs of the jazz singer to the haunting soulful ballads that have made Neil Diamond the legend that he is.

Buy tickets (£15) at or from Celtic Gold, Peel; Shakti Man, Ramsey; Peter Norris Music and Thompson Travel, Douglas.

Breakthrough Breast Cancer is committed to fighting breast cancer through research, campaigning and education with the aim that one day there will be the real possibility of a future freed from the fear of breast cancer.
