The fundraising campaign included a dinner at Thompsons restaurant, a pub quiz, a golf event, a bowling night, a Buddha statuette raffle and much more.

The fundraising campaign was led by photographer Jeremy Banks, a long-time Platinum Point member. He said: "With teenage children myself I felt very strongly about supporting The OLLIE Foundation and my fellow Platinum Point members have been amazing."

Debi Roberts, CEO of The OLLIE Foundation, said: "We are so appreciative of the support that we receive from Platinum Point and our other business partners. Without such generous support we would not be able to do some of the important work we do."
