Organiser Percy Nowell, a Guild Care trustee, said: “It was a wonderful evening, I was transported from today’s world back to an era that I loved so much.

“So many people made the show the success it was – to name but a few, the bands who all worked together as a team, the Guild Care team, our stage and sound crew from GB Music and the staff at the Charmandean.

“A special thanks also goes to the event sponsors Wall Bros Carpets, Arrow Taxi Group and Ian Heart Funeral Service. Additionally, Santander kindly matched the amount raised via the raffle on the night, donating more than £550.”

All funds raised on the night will be put towards Guild Care’s Ashdown Centre, which runs a range of services that provide respite from caring for families with a child or young adult who has a learning disability or other complex needs.
