An evening of fine dining and music at Arley Hall, Northwich, raised more than £16,500 to support Cheshire people living with motor neurone disease.
Viscount Michael Ashbrook, patron of the Cheshire branch of MNDA, and his wife Lady Ashbrook, hosted the event at their elegant home. They welcomed more than 50 supporters and volunteers. After a drinks reception and dinner Dr Brian Dickie, director of research development at the MNDA national office, gave a presentation about current projects exploring treatments. The evening finished with a musical performance from the Manchester School of Theatre, led by Ian Chesworth.
Lord Ashbrook said: ‘I am delighted the evening was successful in raising this fantastic total, while celebrating the important role the association plays and raising awareness of the charity within the local community.’
