Local financial services professionals, led by Neil Clarke of Lucas Fettes & Partners, have raised the highest figure yet from their annual dinner at Sopwell House, St. Albans.

The event, featuring a delicious three course dinner plus a charity auction and casino raised £13,759.50 for Peace Hospice Care, bringing the total that the voluntary committee have raised over 21 years to more than £104,000!
 
The evening was extra special for Toastmaster Howard Robbins who was presented with an engraved gavel and block to mark 20 years presiding over the event.  Neil Clarke praised his skills as Toastmaster and Auctioneer, saying 'with Howard at the helm the charity auction is always a great success – this year guests went away with fantastic lots such as England/Wales Rugby tickets, a trip on a yacht and a day at the Chelsea Flower Show.'
 
Peace Hospice Care Corporate Development Manager, Rachel Fowler added, 'this is a fabulous event and the amount raised both this year and over its 21 year history really does help us to continue providing vital services to our patients and families across South West Hertfordshire.'
