Hundreds donned their best bib and tucker for the Daily Echo’s annual property ball.

The charity dinner dance at Saints’ St Marys Stadium attracted more than 200 from across the Hampshire property industry, including developers and solicitors.

Money raised from the event will be donated to two charities.

They are NewstrAid and Smile 4 Wesssex.

NewstrAid provides welfare for people who are, or have been, employed in the distribution, wholesale and retail of newspapers and magazines in the UK.

Smile 4 Wessex supports the work of the Wessex Neurological Centre at Southampton General Hospital.

A three course meal was enjoyed followed by an auction and then a raffle.

Last year the ball had a Strictly Come Dancing theme and raised more than £6,400 for Wessex Heartbeat and Countess Mountbatten Hospice.
