An 80s party got people in the fundraising spirit when it raised more than £1500 for sick children.

The event, organised by Royston handyman David Knight, raised cash for Make-A-Wish foundation - which arranges treats for children with life threatening conditions.

David said: “Our guests were wonderful and all turned out in absolutely crazy outfits.

“Best dressed was so hard to judge, but went to Elmo and Big Bird from Sesame Street – they must have been boiling in their costumes.”

Natalie Hill from Make-A-Wish UK said: “We are extremely grateful to David for organising this fundraising event. It’s people like David who help to reach our target of granting 90 wishes this year.”
