The pandemic has seen income for the charity halved and the return of its largest gross income event has been a huge boost.

The Superhero themed ball was inspired by the fundraising of Carmela Chillery-Watson, a 7 year old living with LMNA Congenital muscular dystrophy, who raised thousands doing a walking challenge as her favourite superhero Wonder Woman.

Despite having fewer people in the room than previous years, the fundraising on the night was a record £129,000 taking the total funds raised to £328,000.

The night was hosted by the famous Jonny Gould who raised £34,000 in the live auction along with championing various fundraising activity on the night.
