SUPPORTERS of the annual Rokeby Farmers’ Ball donned their tuxedos and ball gowns to funds for a charitable cause during the 73rd event on Saturday night.

More than 200 people attended the glittering night at The Morritt Arms, in Greta Bridge, Barnard Castle.

Guests enjoyed a three-course meal and entertainment from The Scandals band during the night.

All funds raised will be donated to the Parkinson’s UK charity to help fund research to find a cure for the disease.

Ball committee treasurer, Andrew Watson, said everyone had had a great time and thanked all for their generous donations.

The total amount raised will be announced in the coming weeks.

Next year's ball will be held on February 1.
