They are selling tickets for the event and plan to give the proceeds to the Multiple Sclerosis Society's Stop MS appeal.

The appeal needs to raise more than £100m over 10 years to find treatments for everyone with MS.

Heath Rhodes, Chief Operations Officer at Planet Ice, said: “We not only want to raise funds for the chronic condition, but also raise much-needed awareness.”

Nick Moberly, Chief Executive of the MS Society, said: “We’re extremely grateful to Planet Ice for kicking off our partnership with such a festive, yet important, fundraiser.

“Over 100,000 people live with MS in the UK, and the funds raised from events like this could truly change what it means to live with the condition, while also helping us to Stop MS sooner.”
