A record £95,500 was raised on the night for the hospice

One lucky lady took home a £10,000 diamond ring at the annual East Cheshire Hospice Winter Wonderland Ball at The Mere Golf Resort and Spa, Knutsford.

Donated by PR Jones Jewellers in Macclesfield, the one carat diamond was won by Yvonne Dodd in the raffle. In total, a record £95,500 was raised on the night for the hospice.

The event, sponsored by James Doyle Optician, was attended by more than 350 guests who enjoyed an evening of entertainment hosted by local compere Paul Sleem. It included a performance from Bramhall dance and theatre school, DATS, and music from the Alex Clarke Jazz Trio and Superfreak.

Joanna Boyd, events manager, said: ‘It was a wonderful evening which raised a record amount. These events are very important to us as we rely on the generosity of our community to pay for more than 80% of our day to day running costs. Our thanks to everyone who made it so special.’
