A TOUCH of Las Vegas hit Ipswich last night as staff at Croydons Jewellers donned their best bib and tucker to take part in a Christmas Charity Casino Evening.

Existing and potential customers together with invited guests, enjoyed a night of tension on the roulette wheel and played black jack and poker at the Tavern Street store.

It is the third year such an event has been held with all proceeds going to two charities … Disability Care Enterprise and St Elizabeth Hospice.

Gambling chips were given out with each donation that was received and prizes were awarded for the most successful players and there was a staff prize raffle.

Mark Riley, manager of Croydons said: "We've got a good turn out of 160 people and they are enjoying the pretend casino. We hope to raise at least £2,000."

He thanked Barry Dye, the event organiser, Ufford Park and Toymaster for their help in organising the evening.
