THE annual winter charity ball took place at the Simonstone Hall Hotel, near Hawes, with all proceeds going to support Hawes Gala.

Its theme was the Glitz ‘n’ Glamour of Hollywood and many of the costumes reflected the movies. American-style food was served and the evening rounded off with a disco.

The prize for the best fancy dress went to Lesley and David Glancy, as “Ginger Plodgers” and “Fred Despair”.

Special thanks went to the organising committee – Sue Wood, Bec Shaw, Alison Wade, Shona Dinsdale, Richard Noble and Will Richardson.
