One hundred people attended the ball at The Oak Hotel, including Solihull Mayor Councillor Stuart Davis and Mayoress Sarah Walker. Attendees raised £2,500 for the children’s charity, The Royal British Legion and Dream Makers, by buying entry and raffle tickets and auctioning items including a garden swimming pool.
Ian Sommerville, area development manager of Thomas Bragg & Sons, said: “I would like to thank the many local companies who provided prizes, which meant we could raise so much money.”
Live music was performed by Suzi Lauder & The Krystaletts while local magician Mad Dom went table-to-table with party tricks.
The mayor also raised a glass to Thomas Bragg & Sons’ service to the community of Solihull. He said: “Thomas Bragg & Sons is a well-established and well-known company in the borough, it’s no wonder they’ve been going for 150 years. I’m proud to recognise their long service to our town.”
Sommerville added: “A big thank you to all who attended and helped make the event such a huge success.”
