A charity night organised by parents of children at Bowdon Prep School raised £7000 for the Harry and Jock Appeal. More than 200 people attended the event, which was held at Bowdon Hockey and Cricket Club and included raffles and auctions.

The bi-annual ball had a seaside theme and all money raised will go to the maternity and neonatal units at Wythenshawe Hospital.

Lesley Fairlie said: ‘It was a fabulous night and everyone had a good time raising money for a wonderful cause.’
