Local sports celebrities Kell Brook, current holder of the British Welterweight and WBO Inter-Continental titles, and three times Yorkshire Amateur Light Weight Champion boxer Andy Townend attended the gala and visitors enjoyed live comedy, face painting, balloon modelling, games and stalls, food and drink.

The event raised money towards a children’s play area on Dun Street in Swinton.
