A GLITTERING evening at this year’s Mayor’s Ball helped raise more than £1,000 for Pendleside Hospice.
Around 150 guests joined the Mayor and Mayoress of Burnley, Coun. David and Mrs Joan Heginbotham, at the annual soiree at Turf Moor.
The popular event welcomed civic dignitaries from Wyre, Lancaster, Pendle and Padiham, as well as Burnley MP Gordon Birtwistle and his wife Kathleen.
A raffle and charity auction were held on the night which helped raise money for the hospice which is the Mayor’s chosen charity this year.
The Mayor said: “It was a wonderful evening in the true spirit of Burnley. We had a ball.”
