On the night there will be a three course Chinese banquet and a disco with Yorkshire’s premier party band, The Ordinary Men. They will be playing songs from the 1970s, 1980’s, 1990s and 00s to help St Anne’s Community Special School celebrate their milestone birthday. There will also be a raffle and an auction on the night.

Mary Moverley, Treasurer from the Friends and Parents Committee of St Anne's said: “The Friends and Parents of St Anne's raise money for the school all year long but we have never planned an event of this magnitude. We can't thank Irwin Mitchell, and in particular Ashlie Prescott, enough for their support. As our main sponsor they have been with us every step of the way, and their expertise has been invaluable.

“The money raised on the evening will be split between the main school and residence to be spent on out of school activities, day trips, sensory and therapeutic equipment, and to ensure the school's continued participation in Rock Challenge.”
