Fundraising on the evening included a silent auction, a wish tree with over 100 prizes and a raffle for a 3,000 diamond donated by Philip Stoner Jewellers, Leeds.


Laura Crawford, a partner at Squire Sanders and head of the charity committee said: Even though we are part of a global firm it is important for us to support a local charity which does such good work for vulnerable people within the region.


Chris Fields, the chief executive officer of St. Georges Crypt added: The Squire Sanders team deserves massive thanks for everything that they did to make the night the best fund raising event the Crypt has ever had.
