A care home charity ball has raised more than £400 for the Alzheimer’s Society.

The event at the Cherry Blossom Care Home in Warwick Road, to raise awareness of the organisation, had a Continental theme and there was entertainment by Nice n’ Easy, a vintage ‘Rat Pack’ singing trio.

Neighbours of the 80-bed care home were invited and a member of the Alzheimer’s Society also attended the event, and a raffle and ticket sales raised £458.
