A ‘Great Gatsby’ themed ball has raised more than £9k for St John’s Hospice, in Lancaster.

The fundraising evening, which took place at the Castle Green Hotel, Kendal, welcomed more than 110 guests who were encouraged to enjoy the 1920s atmosphere.

Guests were treated to a performance by Lookalikes Magic, a Laurel and Hardy tribute duo, followed by a gourmet dinner, performances from Morecambe singer, Ashleigh Wood and an auction and raffle.
