Great Yarmouth Mayor, Tony Smith, said: “It has been a huge honour to be the mayor of the town in which I was born and I feel that we have made a real difference this year for the charities that I chose to back.

“The civic ball gives me a chance to have a real final push at raising more donations for those charities and I hope that the community of the borough of Great Yarmouth lend their support and come along to the event.”
