To start the night, guests enjoyed a Prosecco reception while comedian Jim Davidson OBE, one of the founders of the charity, mingled and chatted to everyone.
Guests were delighted by performances from The Valley Military Wives Choir who volunteered their services for the occasion.
After a three-course dinner, entertainment continued from the Royal Welsh. Throughout the night, Jim kept the evening light and fun, including hosting a game of heads and tails where the winner won a magnum of military engraved Bollinger. Darryl Heaton, organiser of the event, alongside Rosie Heaton, presented the raffle prizes, and guests had the chance to win a weekend break in a country cottage.
As well as raising awareness for Care after Combat, which provides professional assistance for the well-being of veterans and their families, the event also raised an amazing £21,000.
This will go towards funding further support work.
Music from a band, Dexter, kept guests dancing the night away.
