THERE were more than a few Audrey Hepburn lookalikes at a charity event which took the classic movie Breakfast at Tiffany's as its theme.

More than 400 party-goers attended the fifth Fulflood Ball in aid of homelessness charity Trinity Winchester.

The ball, for the first time held in the Guildhall Winchester, has raised over £75,000 for local charities over the last six years and organisers say this year's event is likely to have raised at least £12,000 although they are still totting up the takings.

The proceeds will to go towards Trinity’s Saturday morning breakfast service for people who are sleeping rough or in Winchester Churches Nightshelter.

Saturday breakfasts support approximately 200 people a year, and the charity is in the process of planning to extend into accommodation services, adding 11 bedsits onto the existing day centre, to further support vulnerable people.

The ball, sponsored by Savills Winchester, saw members of the local community coming together for a night of fine food, dancing and a range of entertainment including a live event artist and chocolate fountain.

Sarah Bayley, co-founder of the Fulflood Ball, said: “When Trinity applied to raise funds for their Saturday morning breakfast service, the ‘Breakfast at Trinity’s’ theme seemed like an obvious choice!

"The community really came together to support the charity, and it was wonderful to see all of our plans come to life. The venue was filled with Audrey Hepburn decorations and quotes, Tiffany’s style boxes and even some of Trinity’s clients dressed as Holly Golightly. Everybody had a fantastic evening, and we’re so pleased to support such a worthwhile cause.”

Lucy Tennant, events and community fundraiser at Trinity, said “We have been overwhelmed by people’s generosity, and are still counting up the money raised. Santander Winchester are providing match funding for money raised through the raffle that they hosted, which is an amazing boost to our fundraising."Q

The organisers thanked Coxford Down Cattery, Lead2Fusion, Solutions Dental and Yuno media for their support.

The Fulflood Ball began as a community celebration in 2012, and has since grown into an eagerly anticipated Winchester event. Trinity’s
