Local businesses and friends joined together for an annual charity lunch at The Grand Hotel in St Annes. Held by the NSPCC, the event opened with a champagne reception followed by a three course lunch.
Over the past 13 years, more than £300,000 has been raised thanks to the generosity of the hard working committee and guests. The money raised from the silent auction and raffle went direct to the NSPCC service centre in Blackpool, which opened in 2012. The centre offers services to help combat child abuse and assists vunerable new parents in how to cope with having a baby.
