The lively evening was hosted at JK’s Bistro, in New Street, on March 29.

The raffle raised £210 for the Brain Tumour Charity, a UK-based organisation fighting to defeat brain cancer which helps the lives of people with a brain tumour and their families.

Jaime Fullick, who co-owns the restaurant with friend Kelly Markley, said: “This was a fantastic total.

“The charity is close to my heart, as my husband Colin was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year.

“Any publicity for the charity is good publicity, as its one of the least funded charities.

“Only one per cent of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this disease, although brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer.”

Jaime said people had to be turned away from the night due to its popularity.

She added: “It’s was supported extremely well - it was busy, noisy and exciting!”
