This was followed by a three-course dinner, before a night of dancing to Arundel-based band, The Alternatives.

Other fun games during the evening included Play Your Cards Right, and there were opportunities to win prizes in the charity’s raffle.

Auctioneer Philip Belcher, from Bellmans, coordinated the charity auction which included lots such as an exclusive flight simulator experience, a weekend break and a private wine tasting.

Christine Gillott, Care for Veterans’ fundraising officer, said: “I would like to thank all of the guests who came and helped us raise such a fantastic amount of money for our veterans. To all of our volunteers and everyone who made the ball possible, we are so grateful for your support.
