A RECRUITMENT company from Great Warley raised more than £4,000 for charity by holding a Great Gadsby-themed ball.

Athona, based in The Drive, organised the event at Woolston Manor Golf & Country Club in Chigwell as a fundraiser for Little Havens Hospice.

Celebrities including Jodie Marsh and former sprinter Derek Redmond turned out on the night with company director Tina London saying the ball was a great success.

She said: "I’m overjoyed with the success of Athona’s Great Gatsby charity ball, especially with how much money we raised for Little Havens."
