Funds for two char­i­ties were boosted by din­ers who danced the night away.

Mayor of Ash­ford, Cllr John Link, hosted a char­ity ball at the Lon­don Beach Ho­tel, Ten­ter­den.

More than £3,600 was raised for his char­i­ties of the year, Pil­grims Hospice and Hi Kent, which works with the deaf and hard of hear­ing.

In ad­di­tion to the dining and danc­ing by 97 guests, there was a raf­fle and auc­tion for a framed Lewis Hamil­ton t-shirt and a bot­tle of Rémy Martin VSOP cognac.

A gi­ant teddy bear, which Cllr Link is invit­ing peo­ple to name for £1 through­out his year, was also on dis­play.

The money for the char­i­ties will be dis­trib­uted next year.
