A charity dedicated to helping disadvantaged children held its glitzy annual fund raiser in Windsor’s Castle Hotel.


 

The Link Foundation Ball saw friends and patrons of the charity dress up in their suits and gowns to raise thousands of pounds at the High Street hotel on Saturday night.

Auctions, a gift sale and a diamond ring raffle raised funds on the night.

The Link Foundation was set up in 2006 by Maidenhead-based Pharmalink Consulting.

The charity is committed to improving the lives of children and their families in the community and the surrounding areas.

It provides grants to disadvantaged children for childcare, toys and basic essentials such as food and clothing.

Link Chairman Una Loughrey said: “All the money raised will go to help disadvantaged children and their families in the community.

"It’s one of our main events. We’re involved in Let’s Rock The Moor as well. We do have quite a few events, this is one of the biggest ones."

There was a 15 lot auction, while a diners also parted with their cash on a ‘Tree of Fortune’ – where people donate £20 to £100 for a mystery gift worth that value or more.

Guests also paid to pick a ping pong ball for a special raffle to win a diamond ring.

Una, who is also a director at Pharmalink, said the prizes were 'brilliant', adding: "Local businesses have been incredibly generous with their donations to the ball."
