A hotel was transformed for a Las Vegas-style event to raise thousands of pounds for charity.

Committed duo Nicola Cromack and Sasha Ingala, from Morely organised a charity event at the Village Hotel in Tingley before they jet off to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania on Boxing Day.

The charity evening, which took place this month, featured Bhangra dancing, a raffle and tombola and a variety of singing performers including Morley MP Andrea Jenkyns. The event was organised to raise money for the Sue Ryder Wheatfield Hospice in Leeds.

It raised nearly £2,000 for the charity.

Sasha said: “I am delighted the evening has been a great success.

“Thanks to the generosity of the people who attended, we have managed to raise £1806 towards our charity event and the hospice.

“A lovely time was had by all at the ball and we want to thank everyone who assisted and attended.”

Vegas-style showgirls paraded around the hotel on stilts as part of the event.

And organiser Nicola shocked the audience when she took to the stage dressed as Eurovision bearded transsexual singer Conchita Wurst to perform her contest hit Rise Like a Phoenix.

The duo are continuing their training before they take on the 19,341-foot trek to the Kilimanjaro summit.

Wheatfields Hospice provides support and care for people with life-shortening illnesses.
