A wildlife rescue charity will be hosting a ball in October to celebrate 25 years of its work and raise cash.

Secret World Wildlife Rescue in East Huntspill will also welcome wildlife reporter Mike Dilger, best known for his appearances on The One Show, as the compere for The Ugly Bug Ball.

The charity is encouraging people to dress up as their favourite insect for the ball, which will take place at the Webbington Hotel, in Loxton, on October 7.

It will begin at 7pm and tickets cost £40 per person to include a three-course meal, casino and cabaret.

There will also be a raffle and silent auction.

Secret World’s head of external relations Samantha Hannay said: “Our annual ball has become a bit of a tradition and last year we welcomed more than 200 guests. We are all looking forward to celebrating Secret World’s achievements and raising vital funds so we can help even more sick and injured animals.”
