A CHARITY ball and auction was held at the Oriel House, St Asaph, rasied over £6,000 for Glan Clwyd Hospital’s children’s wards.

People turned out in their best black tie wear for the event, which raised over £6,000 and counting towards the Rupert and Paddington wards at Glan Clwyd.

Guests sat down for a three course meal and both a live and blind auction and silent auction, as well as a raffle, with over 90 prizes overall that were up for grabs.

Health care support worker, David Jones, said: “The night was excellent – so many people turned up. The money will go towards a major refurbishment for the wards. We want to make sure all the furnishings and toys are up to date and the unit to look brand new.

“We will be getting easy chairs for parents which are recliners – so parents can get some rest as they are always sat in close proximity to their children, and and we are looking at getting new toy stackers and chairs for the children.”
