Thousands raised for good causes at charity dinner

A CHARITY dinner hosted by the chairman of South Northamptonshire Council helped raise more than £3,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care and Diabetes UK.

The event raised the cash through a raffle and charity auction.

Cllr Sally Townsend said: “I’d like to thank everyone who attended the event for supporting these two worthy causes, as well as the businesses and individuals who generously donated prizes. As a result, we were able to raise a fantastic sum.

“Both of these charities are very close to my heart, and I’m sure the £3,082 raised will make a real difference to the work these charities do.”
