Members from a local cancer support group held a ‘Phoenix from the Flames’ spring ball event at Morecambe’s Globe Arena, helping to raise £14,000 for Lancaster charity, CancerCare.

The black tie fundraiser included a fizz reception and three course dinner followed by dancing, live music and an auction with prizes including a signed Manchester United shirt. Among the 250 guests were several members of CancerCare’s Phoenix Cancer Group, an online group offering informal support to local cancer survivors and their loved ones.

Phoenix Group co-founder and ball organiser, Sarah Drake said: ‘The ball was beyond all my expectations and the room was buzzing the entire night, as was the dance floor. The hope was for us to raise money but also awareness of this amazing charity.’
