The event at the Bedford Hotel followed hot on the heels of a quiz night at AKS school, which raised £900.

Committee member Sharon Iqbal said: “The two events between them have raised £2,000 for Trinity, which is marvellous. Thanks to everyone who came along and to Tristan Malgeri for volunteering his time to perform close-up magic for the guests throughout the evening.”

The next carnival fund-raiser for Trinity will be a Valentine Murder Mystery evening at St Annes Cricket Club on Saturday, February 12.
