A Mayor’s Ball hosted in Oakham raised more than £1,000 for charity For Rutland in Rutland.

About 80 people attended the event held by Coun Jayne Woodcock, at the town’s Victoria Hall.

In addition to money raised from tickets sale, funds were also generated through a raffle and personal donations on the night.

Coun Woodcock said: “It went very well. About 80 friends, family and residents attended and made it a lovely evening. I was really chuffed with how it went.”

The charity For Rutland in Rutland offers advice and support to families affected by cancer or dementia and other long term illnesses.
