A ball arranged by a group of female independent financial advisers has raised £4,200 for charity.

The WoW Summer Ball was held at Penventon Park Hotel on Friday, June 21, and was organised by Truro and Wadebridge based Worldwide Financial Planning, with support from Clydesdale Bank.

The evening featured a performance from Double Bounce and a charity auction and a raffle, which raised £3,250.

Clydesdale Bank then boosted the amount to £4,200.

Donna Hansen, whose late mother was looked after by Cornwall Hospice Care at St Julia's Hospice in Hayle, said: "It was a brilliant evening and everyone had a fantastic time.

"We were so pleased with the amount we raised and we'd like to say a huge thank you to Clydesdale for the support they gave us.

"We'd also like to thank all the businesses in Cornwall who supported us with prize donations for the charity auction and raffle."

The evening was opened by BBC Radio Cornwall's deputy news editor, and Deputy Lord Lieutentant for Cornwall, Daphne Skinnard.

The Women of Worldwide (WoW) team was set up by Donna Hansen, Rebecca Bendle and Lynne Williams in April 2012 to raise money for Cornwall Hospice Care.

The next event will be a boat trip on Friday, September 6. Tickets costs £15 and include a pasty and a glass of bubbly.
