Around £7,500 was raised for Kidney Research UK which brings the total raised from this and the previous five balls to over £42,000 for the charity.

Guests were greeted by characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, including oompa-loompas from the Diamondz Dance Group, who also did a welcome dance.

The main music act was Crazy Ape, with The Lovettes enteratining during dinner.

This is the sixth ball organised by Hannah Robinson, Natalie Herring and Richard Spurr for Kidney Research UK. The trio raise vital funds for the charity which undertakes research for kidney patients, like Hannah and Natalie’s mother Pauline.

Lovely ladies.

The three said: “We’d like to thank everyone who attended and helped us raise such a fantastic amount, to the businesses who helped sponsor and support the night and to our families and friends for helping us over the last few months while we prepared.”
