Guests were welcomed by the Shree Muktaveen Pipe Band and a champagne reception, followed by a sumptuous three course meal and a live performance of a tribute to the Jersey Boys.

The evening was a huge success, raising more than £300,000 for the charity. All funds raised go directly to the Sir Simon Milton Foundation and will help us to provide young people with opportunities in training and education, and tackle isolation and loneliness amongst older people.
