SMARTLY dressed revellers flocked to a huge charity ball in Lympsham on Saturday to raise cash for charity.
The black-tie fund-raiser, organised by Selwyn Channon and Eileen Harrington, from the Lympsham Charity Committee, was held at Batch Country House.
The popular event, which attracted 145 guests, featured music from Weston’s RAFA band and body shaking tunes from the Spectrum Party Band.
Holidays to Dubai, Nice and Turkey, as well as a signed Manchester United football shirt, were just a few of the top items up for grabs in a luxurious Bonham’s auction.
Money raised, which is thought to be more than £5,000, will go towards Help for Heroes and Dementia UK.
Eileen said: “So many people said they had such a wonderful time and lots of guests were asking when the next one would be.
“The food and music were really good and the auction was a big success - we are now even considering holding another one next year.”
