A glittering fundraiser saw tens of thousands raised for a charity supporting those with motor neurone disease (MND).
Nearly 200 guests gathered in Woodton on Monday, June 4, for an evening in aid of the MND Association’s Norfolk, Norwich and Waveney branch.
The event - attended by consultant neurologist David Dick from Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital - got under way with a sparkling wine and canape reception, before an entertaining performance from musical comedians Bounder and Cad.
There was also a speech from branch member Judy Burns-Thomson, who spoke about the devastating challenges faced by patients and families with MND.
Thanks to the evening’s auction and raffle, as well as donations prior to the event from friends of the branch, more than £28,000 was raised.
