More than 120 people attended a grand ball held by URPotential.

It was the Blackpool-based organisation’s second fundraising ball and took place at Ribby Hall Leisure Village, in Wrea Green.

Guests enjoyed a champagne reception, with entertainment from the talented Freckleton Youth Brass Band and artist Chris Knapman, of Caricature With Attitude.

There was a four-course meal, with post-dinner entertainment provided by the Manchester Band The Weekend Millionaire.

Compère for the black-tie evening was Helen Kershaw Russell.

Guests received complementary goody bags, sponsored by The Body Shop, Blackpool, and Cooperative Stores, St Annes.

The night was sponsored by Practical Visioneering Ltd. The grand ball auction raised £5,000 towards the URPotential YouthFund, which provides young people across the Fylde coast with access to financial support to purchase equipment and resources, to help them reach their aspirations in work, education or training.
