Hundreds of people helped raise £14,204 for the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) at its annual North-East ball.
Money raised at the Enchanted Forest Ball, held at Wynyard Hall in County Durham, will go to support the charity’s three aircraft which fly around 1,000 missions every year.
The 275 guests were treated to three course dinner and entertainment from Darlington Operatic Society and the New York Brass Band.
The money was raised through tickets sales, donations on the night, and the proceeds from the raffle and tombola.
Ruth Davey, of GNAAS, who organised the event, held on May 10th, said: “Every year these events are getting bigger and better so although the dust is still settling on this ball, we are already looking forward to the next.
“We would like to thank everyone who supported the event and all who came. It was a really special evening and we hope to see even more people next year.”
The ball was hosted by GNAAS patron Pam Royle and among the guests were the owners of Wynyard Hall, Sir John and Lady Mae Hall.
