Number 3 Slip at Chatham Dockyard was the spectacular venue for the Lord Lieutenant's Charity Ball in support of Kent Community Foundation. More than 300 guests were amazed by the transformation of this unique and little-known architectural structural gem.

Sarah Dean chaired the Ball Committee, which raised close to £50,000 from the event. And Kent Community Foundation has secured a pledge to enhance this figure by up to 50 per cent, which could increase the total to £75,000.

Guests were welcomed by Allan Willett, CMG, Lord Lieutenant of Kent, who praised KCF for its "unstinting and hugely beneficial" contribution to voluntary groups and organisations across Kent.

The Foundation has now awarded 3,500 grants totalling £11 million since its inception seven years ago.

Guests included Paul and Clare Rooney, Michael and Emma Head, Richard and Amicia Oldfield, Fiona and John Sunley, Rochelle and Jim Godden, Katie and Hugo Fenwick and John and Brenda Ogden.
