Charity ball

Have your say

TWO sisters who organised a charity ball at Ickworth House last month have raised £5,000 to help pupils at a Ugandan school.

Gemma and Amy Leigh, from Bury St Edmunds, have raised £20,000 since they began fund-raising for Valley View Primary School in 2009.

The money from the ball will be used to build two new classrooms.

Gemma said: “We want to thank everyone who came and helped make the night such a success, a huge thank you to all of the companies who donated items for our auction and thank you for all of the very generous bids on auction items.”
