AYRSHIRE Cancer Support's annual ball raised more than £70,000 for the fight against cancer on a glitzy night at Ayr racecourse.

Guests on the night were transported to the most famous Parisian cabaret, Moulin Rouge, where they enjoyed "an evening of glitz, grandeur and glory", according to event organisers.

Sandra McCall, CEO at Ayrshire Cancer Support, said: “Our heartfelt thanks go to everyone who attended and made the night the great success it was.

"None of this could have happened without the fantastic support of our sponsors, host, speaker, entertainment, auctioneer, volunteers, staff and most importantly, our guests.
