A spectacular masquerade raised £14,000 to change a little girl's life.
The masked ball at Windsor's Harte and Garter Hotel on Saturday last week attracted 130 people in formal dinner suits, gowns and masks.
The money raised will go towards the £50,000 to £70,000 needed to pay for the operation and 20 years of treatment that will help seven-year-old Vivi Gregory-Osborne from York Avenue walk.
The band 'Red Square' flew down from Scotland to play.
The organiser was Catherine Ann Greaves.
Vivi's mother Helen spoke to guests about Vivi's amazing progress and the intensive physio she is now undergoing.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
