Natalie James, Stockdales fundraising manager, said: ‘The occasion was a roaring success which raised an amazing £12,000. This would not have been possible without the kindness of our guests and sponsors and we really appreciate their support.
‘Each year we have to raise £250,000 to help us with our work supporting people with disabilities and this is our main fundraising event. It helps us to raise a significant proportion of the funds we need.’
