Arley Halls Lord and Lady Ashbrook were the guests of honour when the Cheshire branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association hosted its first ever charity dinner dance.
The glittering event, held in the Laurent-Perrier Suite of the Alderley Edge Hotel, was organised by Wilmslow-based trust and estate practitioner Louise Dunkerley, who was inspired in her efforts by her friend and MNDA Cheshire branch chairman Joel Millet. He cared for his late mother Erica as she battled the musclewasting disease, which robs sufferers of the ability to move, speak, swallow and ultimately breathe.
The event raised 2,217 from ticket sales and the proceeds of a raffle which featured prizes donated by businesses including Wilmslows 135 Hairdressers and Cheshire Smoke House, and The Alderley Edge Hotel.
Patron of the Cheshire branch of the charity, Lord Ashbrook, addressed guests and said he was much impressed by what they had achieved.
