The mob wants your money for maternity unit.

MOBSTERS and molls are set to take over The Assembly in Leamington for a swanky shin-dig.

But these generous gangsters are no Public Enemy Number 1 - they are raising money for the the medical research and the region's maternity units.

The 1920s Glamorous Gangster Summer Ball has been organised by the Grace Research Fund.

Tracy and Simon Hayes set up the fund in 2004 in memory of their daughter, Grace, who was born 14 weeks early at Walsgrave Hospital and who sadly died when she was just nine months-old.

The ball is one of the charity's main fundraising events and this year will start in style with a champagne reception followed by a luxury five course dinner, entertainment, an auction and a raffle.

Organisers are urging people to buy their tickets, don their glad rags and raise some much-needed cash for the Grace Research Fund.

Tracy Hayes, who co-organised the ball, said: "We have sold many tickets so it looks set to be a really good evening." The 1920s Glamorous Gangster Summer Ball takes place at The Assembly in Spencer Street on Saturday June 20.

Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start and the dress code in 1920s black tie.

Tickets cost pounds 55 per person or pounds 500 for a table of ten and are available from the ticket hotline on 024 7696 6680 or
