His finale involved the whole audience taking part in a card trick of their own.

Food was cooked and served by local chef Andrew Byrne.

The event at the Beet Club raised £1,500 which is being split equally between Cancer Research UK and ReThink Mental Illness, two charities which are important to Alfie’s family.

His family thanked local companies who sponsored the event: Fourth Dimension Dance, Love Dyslexia, Liam’s Plumbing Services, Treetops Ely, Tesco Ely, Hair2Nails Monat, Costco Wholesalers, Bent and Cornwell Quality Meats Butchers and JezO Events.
