Macclesfield’s Arighi Bianchi celebrated the success of their Supper and Soprano evening, hosted in the store’s candlelit café bar.

It was the inaugural event of the furniture store’s Charity Challenge 2016, which aims to raise £40,000 for East Cheshire Hospice. Guests included Sir Alex Ferguson, Ryder Cup winner and European Tour golfer Jamie Donaldson and Rugby League star, Mark Flanagan. Entertainment was provided by the store’s singer in residence, soprano Rachael Russell.

Commercial director, Nick Bianchi, said: ‘We had a fabulous evening stuffed full of Italian food, music and stories! But of course the best bit was raising over £3,000 for East Cheshire Hospice.’
