The evening began in style, with guests mingling at a drinks reception before enjoying a three-course meal. Hosted by compare Keith Fane, entertainment for the evening consisted of performances from the Royal Northern College of Music's Swing Collective and Scots Guards Association Pipes and Drums.
Guests took part in a live auction and had the opportunity to win some brilliant prizes including Hospitality for 10 at The Sale Sharks while a Cheshire Housewives Day Out for Two was also up for grabs.
The event helped raise funds for the redevelopment of Broughton House to become the UK's first Veteran Care Village and resulted in an impressive £30,000 toward their vision.
