THE Hope and Homes for Children charity ball lived up to its name on Friday, providing a glittering evening for just short of 200 guests.

The Glitter Ball, held at South Holland Centre, raised a massive sum for the international charity that works to ensure all children have the chance to grow up in the love of a family. Ball committee member Helen Whitaker thinks the final figure will be somewhere between £3,000 and £4,000 raised for the charity’s valuable work.

Helen said it was a very successful event, with a gift tree, raffle and champagne draw all encouraging guests to part with more of their money for the good cause.

Party-goers enjoyed a hot carvery provided by Caterwell at the centre before dancing the night away to popular tunes played by The Catch.

Helen said: “It was a good night. The dance floor was full and everybody seemed to be very happy.”

The committee expressed thanks to everyone who donated prizes or supported the evening, to Flowers ‘N Things for providing floral decorations for the hall and CER Groundworks for donating the champagne.
