“It was great to see everyone dressed up, with some outfits even coming from our own Longfield shops! The room looked spectacular and everyone had a really fun night. Thanks to our sponsors and everyone supporting the event we raised over £11,000 for our hospice care – a great result for our first ball in several years.”
