The evening began with a Champagne reception followed by an excellent three course meal and a special cocktail constructed by the hotel with a £1 from every cocktail sold donated by The White Swan.

Compered by John McConville, the Prize Draw, Silent Auction and Mystery Prize draw provided plenty of excitement and helped to raise more than £3k towards Headway Northumberland funds which will be used to further develop our services via Clearer Futures in partnership with Brainbox. Special thanks must go to the many sponsors for providing valuable prizes.

The evening concluded with plenty of networking, a lively DJ Campo disco and dancing till midnight (for some).
