The 25th Anniversary Hansel Ball was a spectacular success!

Barbara Bryceland, star of The Voice and X-Factor, dazzled the audience with a selection of show-stopping tunes at this year’s Hansel Ball.

She was one of an impressive line-up of performers who entertained guests at Brig o’Doon House Hotel last weekend, helping raise more than £30,000 for the charity.

The singer was joined by popular band Counselled Out, singer Katie Boyle and Mr Fabulous himself, television personality James Smith who hosted the event.

The Ball, which was a complete sell out, was a glamorous affair with a four course banquet and a Grand Prize Draw for a selection of top prizes including a weekend break to Prague and dinner, bed and breakfast at Lochgreen House Hotel kindly donated by Costley & Costley.

Other highlights of the evening was the charity auction hosted by auctioneer Willie Paterson with items up for grabs including the opportunity to be a character in a novel by Scottish crime writer Alex Gray, an Alexander Miller Graphite Drawing, a Lulu Guinness Handbag and Purse set kindly donated by The Shoe Gallery and an opportunity for up to 12 people to spend two nights in the Towerhouse at Craufurdland Castle.

One lucky guest also took home a beautiful diamond from Kevan Scott Jewellers in the Sparkling Rock Raffle.

Sponsors of the event included Wades Print, Scentsations of Troon and William Grant & Sons.

Hansel could not run this kind of event without the generosity of it's guests, sponsors and those who donated the raffle and auction prizes. A special thank you has to go to Santander for their very generous support too.

It was just the most incredible evening and the entertainers were absolutely amazing and everyone had a fantastic time.

The money raised will make a huge difference to the lives of the people Hansel support.
