A charity ball hosted by the Mayor and Mayoress of Leighton-Linslade has raised almost £1,700 for charities.

Councillor Ray and Mrs Val Berry held the event at Leighton Buzzard Golf Club on 24 October 24 with 97 guests attending.

These included including mayors and chairmen from neighbouring towns, the mayor’s charity representatives, town councillors, officers from the Leighton-Linslade Town Council and local business representatives, together with friends and colleagues.

Guests enjoyed a champagne cocktail on arrival, followed by a wonderful dinner provided by in-house caterers, LJ Catering.

After dinner, guests danced the night away to live music provided by local group Razz whose versatile mix of 60s, 70s and 80s music ensured the dance floor was occupied most of the night.

The funds raised at the event are in support of the mayor’s chosen charities, who this year are Macmillan Cancer Support, Kids Out, Leighton Linslade Scout Groups and Leighton Buzzard Narrow Gauge Railway.

Councillor Berry thank all those who supported him to make this event so successful.
