Anne Swanston, Medical Secretary at Spire Harpenden Hospital, hosted the sixth ‘Ian Swanston Charity Ball’ at Sopwell House Hotel & Country Club in St Albans on Saturday 26th April, in aid of Crohn’s & Colitis UK.
The charity are celebrating their 35th anniversary this year.
Anne has held the ball for the sixth year running in memory of her late husband Ian, who died suddenly in October 2002.
This year the ball was attended by 160 guests, who enjoyed a three course dinner, auction and dancing to The Push band.
Anne said "I am delighted with the support I receive for the event every year, and I am extremely proud that friends and family so readily support me in raising funds in memory of Ian, for this very worthwhile charity."
This brings the total raised from this event and the Charity golf days that Anne has organised over the past 11 years to over £150,000.
