BASEPOINT in Waterlooville has presented The Elizabeth Foundation with a cheque for £5,000 at the charity’s Beethoven Ball, held at the Marriott Hotel in Portsmouth.

Guests enjoyed an evening of live music from two bands including vocal harmony trio, The Cadettes, and a show band called Star, as well a live auction.

Grand prizes included a week-long villa getaway in Florida for 12 people, a two-week villa stay in South Africa and a Fuller’s hotel stay and festive hamper.

Smaller prizes comprised of a framed Portsmouth football shirt signed by the team, an android tablet and racecourse tickets.

The event raised £9,000 in total. Basepoint added £5,000 of this, creating a grand total of £14,000.

Amy Sparling, centre manager for Basepoint Waterlooville, said: ‘Everyone had a great time at the ball and the auction went down a storm, especially the bigger prizes. People gave generously and hopefully, this money will go a long way in providing care for those in need.’
