Home-Start Herts strategic manager Suzy Moody said: "Everyone put so much effort into their costumes and they looked fantastic.

"It is important to us, not only to raise as much as we can so we can support more families that are at breaking point, but to also make sure guests have a really enjoyable and entertaining night out."
