More than 270 people attended the charity luncheon, organised by Carolyn Hughes PR and set to a backdrop of fabulous blooms. Guests included singer Rebecca Ferguson, actress Gillian Kearney and Lucy's co-presenter Tony Morris. The Voice's Holly Ellison entertained the crowd before a charity auction raised more than £15,000 for Radio City's Cash for Kids.
Lucy shared some fascinating anecdotes from her career, paying homage to the stories and people who'd stayed with her along the way: 'I'm grateful to everyone in the North West for inviting me into their homes for the last three decades.'
