Verity and Ashley Gamble, from South Wootton, organised Summer's Ball in honour of their daughter Summer who was stillborn in September last year.

Held at the Knights Hill Hotel, the ball included a variety of entertainment such as West End Jerseys, a tribute act to Frankie Valli & The four Seasons, and a raffle and auction.

So far £5,505 has been raised for Theresa's Tiny Treasures, a charity which provides families with keepsakes to remember their babies.
