A CURRY and comedy night raised £1,000 to help disadvantaged and disabled youngsters enjoy a magical Christmas.

The fundraiser at IndiLuxe in Amblecote was held by More Mascots Please, a community interest company that supports disabled and disadvantaged young people and their families across Dudley.

Deputy Mayor of Dudley Susan Greenaway and her consort, Desmond Greenaway also joined in the fun.

The evening raised £1,000 which will host a Christmas party for the youngsters and fund a visit to Santa at Cherry Lane Garden Centre.
