This year's VIP ball, with headline act Olly Murs, has raised over £200,000 for the Foundation.
The night was very much a family affair, with Alan and Lainya's son and two daughters joining them for the party.
Our Foundation was launched on 31 May 2012, with the aim of supporting disability in the North East by raising at least £250,000 every year. We hope that you can see the benefits the Foundation has already brought to disabled children and adults, their families, schools and groups.
