The Childrens Adventure Farm Trust broke all records at their eighth annual ladies lunch held at The Mere. This years theme was Venetian Masquerade and the charity didnt disappoint with an event full of glamour, fun and most importantly fundraising - for local terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children.
Organisers were thrilled to welcome 435 ladies from all over the region and raising over 40,000.
The charitys patrons turned out in force to support a cause close to their hearts. Suzan Holder, Catherine Manford, (wife of comedian Jason) paralympian Sarah Storey and business woman Carole Nash brought along family and friends to enjoy the event.
Gravity Live provided dancers and stilt walkers who wowed the audience. There was a stunning fashion show by Black White Denim of Wilmslow, with some surprise guests at the end two very handsome young men from Butlers in the Buff.
Sale Sharks and Cheshire Fitness provided some fit and able helpers to sell tickets for a raffle offering prizes donated by Kuoni, Cheshire Life and assembled stall holders.
Each guest was treated to a cupcake supplied by Beauleas Cake Studio in Knutsford who also donated a prize for the auction.
Julie Gray, Events and Community Fundraiser at CAFT, was thrilled with the success: This was an amazing day. We cant thank our guests and contributors enough. To raise 40,000 was beyond our wildest dreams, were all totally blown away by the generosity of all concerned.
