SPORTS fans from across Halton turned out to support charity at a sportsmen's dinner in Runcorn.
Two-hundred people attended the evening which raised £2,500 for the Mencap and Compass charities.
Seventies soccer legend Duncan McKenzie was the guest speaker and donated a number of prizes to be auctioned.
Playing more than 300 games and scoring in excess of 100 goals, McKenzie is remembered as one of the greatest players of his era, serving Nottingham Forest, Everton and Chelsea.
The event was held at The Heath Business Park and organised by the BICC Charity Committee, along with Keith Darlington Electrical.
Arthur Bellfield, Keith Darlington and Ray Thornley of the BICC committee have organised charity evenings for a number of years, with Tommy Docherty speaking at last year's dinner.
Part of the money raised will be spent on treating 50 mentally-handicapped children to a New Year show at The Brindley in Runcorn.
