More than 100 guests's tastebuds were treated by dishes served up by Pickle Shack, a food company delivering creative catering for weddings and events across Devon, Somerset, Dorset and Cornwall.

The evening was staged at the Mackarness Hall, with members of TRIP selling cocktails and holding a raffle.

Charlotte Cora Music provided the entertainment on the evening.

Sharon Thorne, deputy manager of TRIP, said: "The money raised, alongside other fundraising and grants, means we can now order the new wheelchair accessible vehicle to replace our much-loved Renault.

"We hope everybody enjoyed themselves."
