An Enchanted Evening was the annual fundraising event of Scarborough theatre company Twilight Productions.

Twilight presented a cheque to Donna Loveland, vice-chair of the Andrew McGeown Legacy Fund, which raises money for Scarborough RNLI.

Donna, whose brother Andrew died in the sea last year, was joined by her parents, Pete and Julie McGeown, who are committee members of the fundraising group, and Donna's children, Ruby, 10, and Leon, seven.

The cheque was handed over by David Nicholson, who runs Twilight, and three members of the Twilight youth team, Nathan Forbes, Taylor Atkinson and Mia Collinson.

The presentation took place at Roscoe Rooms on Roscoe Street, where Twilight are based.
