A reminder ... 

Judy Murray is coming to Ipswich next month as the VIP guest at a prestigious fund-raising dinner. 

A few tickets are still available for the event - at The Hangar, Kesgrave Hall, on Thursday, October 10 - which will celebrate leadership in sport and business.

As the mother of tennis superstars Andy and Jamie Murray, who include Wimbledon singles and doubles titles among their many successes on the world stage, Judy hardly needs any introduction.

But Judy is also a star of the sport in her own right, having led the Great Britain Fed Cup team and coached her sons en route to international stardom.

Her visit to Ipswich is in her role as a patron of the Foundation, launched in honour of Elena,  after her tragic death from liver cancer five years ago at the age of 30.

The black-tie event will raise funds for both the Elena Baltacha and Judy Murray foundations and tickets cost £1,140 for a table of 12 – that’s £95 per person – to include a three-course dinner with wine and music from the Matt Hodges Jazz Band.

It is being organised in conjunction with the award-winning law firm, Birketts, whose chief executive Jonathan Agar said: “We are delighted to have played a small part in making this event a reality.

“It promises to be a wonderful occasion, bringing together these two great foundations to celebrate women in sport and business.”

Tickets can be booked by contacting the charity’s finance director, Vicky Solomon, by email on vicky@elenabaltachafoundation.or
