A FUNDRAISING ball on the Grand Pier hosted by building company Crest Nicholson raised more than £39,000 for children's charity Variety.

More than 600 people attended the event and there was live music and a charity auction.

Crest Nicholson’s managing director for the South West, Tom Dwyer, said: “We’re thrilled to have raised such an incredible amount of money for such a worthy cause. Our annual charity event is always a lot of fun, and we can’t thank those enough who donated to Variety.”

The money will be used to buy a sunshine coach, which is used by schools for children with special needs.

Variety’s fundraising manager Charlotte Allen said: “These coaches ensure that children can interact with the world around them and experience a fun, entertaining and educational environment, while ensuring they are transported as safely as possible.”
