A NEW Year's Eve party has raised more than £500 for charity.

Some 200 revellers attended a disco at Gravesend Rugby Club last week, raising money for the Brain and Spine Foundation and the Ann Conroy Trust, which supports sufferers of Syringomyelia.

The event was organised by Katie Barnes, of Norfolk Road, Gravesend, whose 16-year-old daughter Rebekah Wilson suffers from Syringomyelia, a rare illness in which a cyst develops in the spinal cord causing pain and weakness in the body.

Ms Barnes said: "The event was a success, and we raised £550. It is the first fundraising event we have held, and we now want to hold another event in the next few months."

Gravesend-based hairdressers Top Notch Hair design donated a free haircut and blow dry at the event, and bosses at Brands Hatch offered two free tickets to the British Touring Car Championships.
