James Burrell Builders Merchant's first Charity Ball at Ramside Hall helped raise over £13,000 for Prostate Cancer and MIND UK.

The night, hosted by BBC Tees Gary Phillipson, was attended by over 150 suppliers, customers and staff.

Together they celebrated the great work that they all do in the industry across the North East and Yorkshire and to raise money for Prostate Cancer and MIND UK.

Nick Richardson, Senior Management at James Burrell, took to the stage to welcome guests and to give people an overview of what James Burrell truly means to the Richardson family and their hopes for the future for the ever-successful company.

The night started with a reception at the Ramside Hall, followed by a three course meal, a live auction and a bustling dancefloor.

Nick Richardson said: "Thank you to each and every person who came along to our fundraising dinner and helped us raise an amazing total.  The kind donations have helped us take our yearly total to over £20,000."

"The night was a truly outstanding event with a brilliant atmosphere and a fantastic networking opportunity which was enjoyed by all. We are all really proud of our first ever charity event and the remarkable team effort that went into making the night a success".
