The fundraising evening, which featured multi-award winning comedian Jason Manford, focused on the issues of loneliness and social isolation within the community, and the funds collected will be used for LJWB’s community support services team.

“We are seeing an increasing number of people becoming socially isolated across all age groups,” said Liz Bradbury, LJWB’s CEO on the night, “Loneliness is also on the increase. Without the intervention of LJWB, 1 in 4 people in our community run the risk of becoming socially isolated.”

Guests gathered for the good cause.
