The annual dinner organised by the Staffordshire committee raised £9,530.
Held in the Ingrestre Suite at the Staffordshire Showground, the event welcomed 270 supporters to a three-course meal with entertainment from comedy group Three Men in a Bow Tie. Auctioneer Mike Williams sold 22 lots, including a tour of the JCB factory, a cottage stay, and a sheepskin rug.
Kate Jones, regional manager for the West Midlands, said: “This was another successful year for the Staffordshire committee, who put a lot of time and effort into organising the dinner. I’d also like to thank Barclays for their match-funding of £3,000.”
The next fundraising event in Staffordshire is an Elvis Night on April 20 at Hilderstone Village Hall. For more information, please contact Kate on firstname.lastname@example.org
