The event raised money for the Mayoress’s three charities – Leukaemia and Lymphona Research, Rainbows at Barrowford and Derian House Children’s Hospice.

It also had a “Hearts and Flowers” theme and included a meal, an auction, raffle and tombola as well as entertainment by an Abba tribute duo and a 70s, 80s and 90s disco.

A spokesman said the evening had been very successful and many compliments had been received this week.
