More than £38,000 was raised to help people suffering from cancer at a Christmas ball.
A total of 230 guests raised £38,600 at CLAN Cancer Support’s Christmas Cracker at Ardoe House Hotel.
The annual fundraising event, which sees individuals and businesses from across the North-east come together in support of the charity, included a drinks reception, three-course dinner, entertainment and dancing. The Kilted Chef Craig Wilson, from Eat on the Green, donated one of the main prizes for auction.
His VIP Pop-up Party package raised £7,500 and the winner will be treated to a luxury meal prepared by Craig at a location and date of their choice.
The prize also includes a butler service, as well as a singer and a piper.
Dr Colette Backwell, CLAN’s chief executive, said: “It was a terrific evening, with the event bringing the magic of Christmas alive, and we are truly grateful to each individual and organisation that supported the event and helped to raise such a fantastic total.”
