Ruby ball raises £1,785 for charity

A charity ball held to mark Broxtowe Borough Council’s 40th anniversary raised an outstanding £1,785.

The money raised will go towards the Broxtowe Mayor’s chosen two charities, Treetops Hospice and The Helpful Bureau in Stapleford.

Around 280 guests enjoyed a three-course meal and danced the night away at the ruby-themed event.

One lucky guest took home a Paul Smith handbag worth £489 in a charity auction, and first prize in the grand raffle was a double glazed PVC door worth £800, courtesy of KLG Amazing Glazing,

The event was held at the Nottingham Belfry Hotel. Visit for pictures.
