A fundraising ball for a charity dedicated to helping disadvantaged children was held at the Castle Hotel in Windsor on Saturday.

More than 200 guests attended the sixth Link Foundation Ball which raised £21,500 for the Maidenhead-based charity.

The evening included a charity auction, a diamond ring raffle and a performance by a band called Riser at the MGallery hotel in Windsor High Street.

The charity is committed to improving the lives of children and their families in the community and the surrounding areas.

It provides grants to disadvantaged children for childcare, toys and basic essentials such as food and clothing.

Una Loughrey, chairman of the Link Foundation, said: “It was just such a fun event and it was a great evening.

"It’s been a great success, and we’d like to thank all the patrons and volunteers for its success.

"It took a lot of organising and it was a great team effort.”

This year the charity is celebrating its 10th anniversary and a total of more than £1.1m has been raised in that time.

Una added: “It’s a real landmark, we’ve been going for 10 years and that much has been raised because of events like last night.”
