Councillor Andrew Pugh hosted the successful evening at the March Braza Club which raised money for March Air Cadets, March Army Cadets, FACET and Chatting Independently, a charity which supports those with a physical handicap.

There were 118 people who enjoyed the night, which consisted of a five course meal, music from the band Skyliners, a caricature artist and a raffle.

“It was an excellent night which raised a fantastic amount of money,” said Mr Pugh.
