YORKSHIRE Cancer Research Vale Committee held a ball, filled with laughter, dancing and, most importantly, fundraising.

With music from Fay Donaldson and dancing to The Wickerman, the event was held in the beautiful surroundings of Middleton Lodge, near Richmond, North Yorkshire. Thanks were given to Vale of Mowbray for their entertainment sponsorship.

"The generosity of our many loyal supporters and friends raised over £12,000 for such a valuable cause, and we thank you all for making the event as fabulous as it could be!" said an event spokesperson.
