MORE than 500 guests attended an annual charity ball to help raise almost £30,000 in memory of a 17-month-old toddler.

Parents Ian and Nicola Richardson, of Kirkhill Bank, Cubley, have hosted Alexander's Charity Ball for the past four years since their young son died from sudden infant death syndrome in February 2007.

This year's event, in Leeds on Saturday, raised more than £27,000 for The Lullaby Trust, which aims to prevent unexpected deaths in infancy, taking the family's fund-raising total to in excess of £81,000.
