PUBLISHED: 15:02 05 June 2015 | UPDATED: 15:04 05 June 2015




A FANTASTIC time was enjoyed by all at the Avery Estate Agents Grand Charity Ball.

Held in memory of Jack Colin Tucker, the ball fundraised for the Special Care Baby Unit at St Michaels Hospital, Bristol.

Over 300 guests attended the dinner held at Batch Country House in Lympsham.

Organisers Sarah Tyson (Director of Avery) and Jane Tucker (Jack’s Mum) were delighted to welcome M.C. and VIP guest, former England cricketer, Matthew Hoggard MBE.

There was plenty of entertainment with a silent auction, casino, horse racing, grand draw, tombola, a fun photo booth and live music from nine-piece band Kick the Cat.

The ball was a huge success raising an incredible £26,000 which will be used to buy two incubators for the Special Care Baby Unit.

The organisers would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who kindly supported the event with special mention to their friends on the committee and for photos courtesy of Tim Webb of Infinity Photography.

The estate agency’s next event date is booked, please visit www.averyea.co.uk for further information. Avery would love to hear from anyone who would like to get involved.
