The annual May Ball was held on Saturday 13th at Crowne Plaza.

A sparkling reception was accompanied by entertainment from Flash the Magician before guests sat down to a delicious three course meal. Congratulations must go to Mrs Mableson, who faced down tough competition to secure the winning prize in a hotly contended game of musical chairs between courses.

We were delighted to be able to offer an array of fantastic prizes from generous local businesses, allowing us to raise a total of £940 with our raffle, the proceeds of which were split between the NHSG bursary fund and Plan UK.

After the meal and raffle, guests embraced the opportunity to break out their best dance moves during a live performance by band Groove Allstars and a disco.
The night was hugely enjoyable and we would encourage everyone to come along next year and join in the fun.
