UNDERWEAR was flying as a Tom Jones impersonator performed at Rastrick Independent School's annual fundraising ball.

The performer was the star attraction at the charity event at the Holiday Inn, Clifton, on Saturday.

His act was a surprise for the 120 guests, who were mainly parents of pupils and friends of the school.

The surprise entertainment was revealed when 10 out of 50 raffle winners discovered their prizes were underwear - ready to throw at the singer.

The real Tom Jones is famed for having women's pants thrown at him on stage.

Lisa Brambani, who organised the event with Bridgette Marshall, said: "We wanted to make things as much fun as possible.

"We usually have a black tie ball, but we fancied a change and went for a party theme."

The annual events have raised more than £10,000 for the Save The Children charity in the 10 years they have been running.

Lisa added: "We support this charity because it is a good one. At the moment it is helping children affected by the tsunami, so it is supporting two causes really."

The event is expected to have raised around £700.
