Guests glammed-up for a black tie event at the 17th-century Barrington Hall to raise money for a children’s charity.

100 people turned out for Barrington Autumn Ball and helped to raise £7,500 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

Guests received a complimentary drink on arrival, before enjoying a three-course meal and being entertained with live music from UK party band Mind The Gap.

Radio presenter Jeremy Sallis was compère for the evening.

Alan Moggridge, who helped run the ball, said: “It went really well, with guests thoroughly enjoying themselves.

“We’re proud to have raised funds for such a worthy cause.”

Graham Butland is chief executive of the charity.

“I’d like to say thank you to everyone who went, and what a great venue – befitting of a great event!” he said.

“Huge thanks also to the organisers. We simply could not provide the services we do without support from such kind-hearted people.”
