Twas the month before Christmas and all throughout Bristol revellers were donning their finest attire and heading to the West Country Crimestoppers annual Christmas party for a night of fundraising, dining, drinks and dancing!
The guest list included the Lord Mayor, Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens and Chief Constable Andy Marsh...
...but the real VIP and guest of honour was Crimestoppers West Country's Gordon Chisholm who retires this year after 12 years working for Crimestoppers - so we were sending him off in style!
Despite it being November, there was plenty of festive cheer among the guests - and when the time came everyone dug deep to support the charity through the raffle and the auction which Gordon led for his final hurrah.
The evening was a great success and we raised over £16,000 which will go towards the work we have planned for next year.
