The event began with a champagne reception before moving on to a delectable three-course dinner.
The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the powered wheelchairs which were given to five young people of different ages.
The excited youngsters were accompanied on the night by their families and friends and are all looking forward to enjoying the independence their new powered wheelchairs will give them. The evening raised an incredible £15,340, which marked the end of a fantastic fundraising year.
