Wishing Well was created with the aim to raise funds for local charities close to people’s hearts.

This year’s ball raised an “amazing” total of £6,166.42 bringing the total amount raised across two events this year to £8,866.42.

Speaking on behalf of the Wishing Well team, Sarah Little said: “Every prize from the casino, auction and the raffle were all kindly donated.

“Without the support of these people and all of those that attended, the evening wouldn’t have been possible.

“We look forward to doing it again next year for St Catherines, Macmillan and our third charity (yet to be decided).

“Thank you for your support.”
