They're used to spending their time in overalls and boots, but for one night only it was ballgowns and tuxedos making an appearance when Helston and St Keverne Young Farmers' Club held their dinner and dance.

Taking place at the Penmorvah Manor Hotel near Budock Water, it was a chance for club members to join with family and friends for an evening of celebration, marking the end of another club year.

During the course of the evening cheques were presented to Bristol Children's Hospital and mental health charity the Invictus Trust, with each receiving £1,700 from the proceeds of the club's events this year, including its autumn ploughing match.

Guest speaker was Helston auctioneer Philip Care, who spoke about the agricultural industry once everyone had enjoyed a three-course dinner.

A number of cups and other trophies were then handed out to members of the club who had particularly excelled over the last 12 months.
