A popular hotel in Wellingborough held a special fundraiser in aid of a local charity.
Wellingborough IBIS invited residents from the Wilby Way estate to visit the hotel just before Christmas for an evening of socialising and networking.
The event also featured a raffle, a quiz and free refreshments and it raised £184 for the local air ambulance.
Wellingborough IBIS front office team member Samuel Shoesmith said: “It was a wonderful chance for us to raise funds and awareness for a local charity and provide the local community with an opportunity to get together.
“Ibis gave the space, food and drink as well as providing the staff to ensure the event went off without a hitch and I compered the evening.
“It was delightful seeing young and old from the area join in the Christmas carols during the interludes.
“Even more delight was brought as people’s faces lit up when they won an array of wonderful prizes, again courtesy of the Ibis Wellingborough.
“We would like to thank everyone who supported the event.”
The prizes on offer included a complimentary two night stay at the hotel, bottles of wine and the top raffle prize of a complimentary two night stay in an Ibis hotel in Barcelona.
