Good sports have splashed out on an event in aid of two very good causes.

The Sportsman’s Dinner took place on Friday, August 5 at the Sporting Lodge Hotel in Middlesbrough.

The evening event featured a fashion show, charity raffles and a ‘Money Can’t Buy’ auction, all helping to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust and Crohn’s and Colitis UK.

The fund-raiser was the brainchild of local entertainer Sarah Porteous who was inspired by the experiences of family and friends.

The dinner, attended by 150 guests, was hosted by Real Radio’s Gary Philipson and Legends Bernie Slaven and Mickey Horswill, with celebs including singer/songwriter Tiger Lilly and former Coronation Street starts Tom Hudson and Lucy Evans.

The charities will benefit to the tune of more than £1,000, with 70% going to Crohn’s and Colitis and the remainder to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Event management student Sarah said: “Given the current tough economic climate, it was great to see so many people turn out in support two very worthy charities.

“The work they do is invaluable and all those who took part in both the golf day and the dinner have helped that work to continue.

“I’d also like to thank all our sponsors for the contribution they made to a truly memorable evening.”
