A charity gala raised more than £20,000 to help critical and terminally ill children, in memory of a mother’s lost daughter. Hayley Mednick died aged 31 in July last year, and her mother Adele wanted to keep her memory alive by fundraising for the charity Hopes and Dreams.

More than 275 guests were in attendance at the gala, based at the Prince Regent Hotel in Woodford Green. Many people and local businesses provided prizes for the evening’s raffle including a box at Tottenham with champagne and lunch, a helicopter ride, a limo experience, beauty treatments and much more. Adele Mednick commented: ‘The event proved to be a huge success, thank you to all those involved. Hopes and Dreams means a lot to me, the charity helped a family friend 25 years ago, with her six-year-old daughter, and my own daughter loved children, so it seemed fitting. I look forward to hosting another event next year.’
