CHEQUE IT OUT: Emergency nurse consultant, Suzie Robinson Southey, Laura Shepherd, Lisa Taylor and interim chief operating officer, Karen Croker

THE magic of Disney came to life to raise £7,500 for vital new equipment to help youngsters visiting the Children’s A&E at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Junior Sister Laura Shepherd and Lisa Taylor, a Health Care Assistant, put on the glamorous night to buy sensory equipment to help youngsters with autism and special needs.

A total of 168 people enjoyed dancing the night away at The Knight’s Hill Barn, in King’s Lynn, on February 18.

Guests were greeted on the evening by Disney princesses before tucking into a three-course meal and dancing to the Phase One Roadshow. Entertainment on the night was provided by a drag artist and burlesque show.

Miss Shepherd said: “It was a spectacular night and we hope that everyone who came along enjoyed the ball as much as we did. We are thrilled to have raised £7,500 and would like to thank everyone who contributed for their support and generosity, particularly the Knight’s Hill and DSD Printers.

“We would like to extend a big thank you to Nationwide and King’s Lynn Regis BNI for their donations.”
