The return of the prestigious black-tie event, the Stevenage Community Trust's annual dinner and dance led to more than £36,000 being raised for a Stevenage charity.
The sell-out event at the Priory Barn in Little Wymondley was compèred by surprise guest Olympic ski jumper Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards.
Commenting on the evening, Chair of the Trust and Stevenage Packaging Founder, Robert Stewart said:
“Our generous sponsors, members and supporters provided 28 auction prizes and over 40 raffle prizes helping us to raise a record £36,500 for worthy local causes. Thank you to everyone who bought a ticket, donated a prize or volunteered to make the event another fantastic fundraising success. Special thanks to our main sponsors Austin’s Funeral Service, Stevenage Packaging Ltd, Tollers Solicitors and The Wine Society.”
