Guests raised 20,872 during the Touch of Class charity ball at Gisborough Hall, North Yorkshire, in aid of the Holistic Care Centre, Middlesbrough. Charity ball patron Steven Bell, owner of Chapters Hotel and Restaurant, Stokesley, North Yorkshire and his brother Peter Bell, said they had now raised a total of 134,372 over seven years for the centre.
The theme for the ball was Proud to Be British and the evening included a fund raising casino, auctions and raffles. An additional donation of 1,000 was also presented to the charity Help for Heroes, in keeping with the theme for the evening.
I would like to thank everyone who attended this years event and particular thanks goes to the people who are there ever year and all those who kindly donated prizes, said Steven Bell.
It was a fantastic evening and we are thrilled to have raised so much money for the charity.
The Holistic Cancer Care Centre, which uses therapies that complement orthodox cancer treatments, supports patients through the physical side effects and emotional roller coaster experienced by many when diagnosed with cancer.
Lynne Gray, deputy manager at the Holistic Cancer Care Centre, said: All the efforts to make A Touch of Class such a success are very much appreciated. To have raised the 113,500 over the previous six years is a tremendous achievement, but to then again hit a target over 20,000 this year is just unbelievable especially more so in the current economic climate.
