Winter Ball was held in the Pavilion Suite at Chester Racecourse.

Over 370 guests stepped into a winter wonderland at a fundraising ball held by Hope House and Ty Gobaith children’s hospices.

Their Winter Ball was held in the Pavilion Suite at Chester Racecourse.

On arrival guests were greeted by a stilt walking ice maiden and ice sculptures. A giant sleigh took guests into a world of virtual reality.

The evening raised £70,000, which will go directly towards helping families who have to cope with the tragedy of a child’s death.

Nicola Sciarrillo, area fundraiser, was delighted by the sum raised: ‘Tonight has been spectacular. My colleagues and I wanted to put together an evening that guests would remember. Seeing all the pieces come together tonight and to raise such a fantastic amount is overwhelming. The atmosphere has been amazing, the loud auction was particularly exciting and I would like to thank everyone who has played a part in making this evening so successful.’
