Bond night raises thousands for charity
The Mayor of Dudley has proved he has the golden touch by raising over £4,000 for charity at the annual Mayor’s Ball and Civic Awards.
More than 300 people attended the James Bond themed event, sponsored by Excel 2000 Windows, at the Copthorne Hotel in Brierley Hill last week.
A grand total of £4,295 was raised, which will be split between the Mayor’s three charities – Dudley Mind, YMCA Black Country Group and Dudley Alzheimer’s Society.
A host of businesses, civic dignitaries and community group representatives attended the night, which featured casino tables, raffle, auction, games and entertainment.
A world-class snooker champion, a youth campaigner and a renowned charity were among the Civic Award winners who were presented with exclusive hand-crafted glassware.
Councillor Dave Tyler, Mayor of Dudley, said:
I am overjoyed that the ball has raised so much money for my three chosen charities and I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to the businesses, sponsors and all who attended the night for making it possible.
I would also like to thank all our award winners and nominees, they are all amazing people who help to make our borough a better place.
