Fundraising records were well and truly smashed at East Cheshire Hospice’s Winter Wonderland Ball.

Over 450 guests attended the occasion at The Mere Golf Resort and Spa, raising £85,000, which is £15,000 more than last year. The main sponsors, Alderley Park, provided a drinks reception and guests were welcomed by Sarah Dale, an advanced nurse practitioner at the hospice. One lucky raffle winner took home the sparkling prize of a one carat diamond worth £10,000, kindly donated by PR Jones Jewellers.

Hospice events manager, Jessica Ruth, said: ‘It costs £7,500 to provide each day of hospice care. Our annual ball is a hugely important fundraising event for us so we are thrilled that we’ve raised more money than ever before.’
