TELEVISION presenter Helen Skelton is returning to Cumbria to host a charity ball in aid of two cancer charities.

Helen is lending her support to the Beijing Biddies, two women - Edwina Sorkin and Kate Sleath - in their 60s who drove from the UK to Beijing in just 29 days to raise money for Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support.

She will compere the Dickie Bows and Diamonds Ball at the Rheged Centre, on Saturday November 29 which will feature a preview of a documentary showing the Beijing Biddies on their 8,000-mile journey.
