After enjoying a welcome drink, 300 guests sat down to a three course dinner followed by live entertainment from Dance with Passion and Elvis Presley impersonator Steve Halliday. A silent auction, auction and raffle included prizes such as a ten day holiday in Cyprus and a pair of diamond earrings donated by HSBC – which were won by Joanne McCallum from Bretherton.
