A Sheffield couple took their fundraising total for The Children’s Hospital Charity to £928,000 over 23 years as a result of their latest Daffodil Ball.
David and Jean Fyfe started the event as a one-off in 1990.
The latest was at Baldwin’s Omega, Brincliffe Edge, and they have no intentions of stopping.
David, who runs family business Fyfe Financial Ltd, said: “We’re so thrilled that we are able to hold such an enjoyable event each year that people continue to support so generously. It’s extremely rewarding to see how the money really makes a difference to children’s lives and that’s why our involvement with the hospital is such a special part of our own.”
Auction prizes this year included a signed guitar from singer Katie Melua, merchandise signed by charity patron Jessica Ennis, a cut one carat diamond and a golf lesson with coach Peter Cowen.
The ball has helped to provide pioneering medical equipment, and this year’s will fund a portable ultrasound machine for babies.
