St Leonards Hospice in York is celebrating its silver jubilee in style after raising a staggering 53,550 at its Sunflower Ball.


More than 560 guests enjoyed a fun-filled evening at York Racecourse that included a five-course meal, entertainment from The University of York Jazz Quartet, an art exhibition, grand prize draw, charity casino and silent auction.


Sunflower Ball committee chairman Helen Williams said: We were expecting the recession to affect the amount we raised, but thanks to the generosity of everyone, we far exceeded our expectations.


It costs 3.3 million a year to run St Leonards Hospice. To find out how you can help, visit their website at www.stleonardshospice.org.uk.
