The Childrens Adventure Farm Trust enjoyed a taste of the Mediterranean with their Spanish themed summer ball.

With the help of 170 guests they raised 20,000 at their 10-acre site at Booth Bank Farm,
Millington.

The charitys patrons, Lee Boardman and Jennifer James, joined guests in the celebrations, which began with a drinks reception in the sun. Guests were served Sangria and champagne while being serenaded by Penny Mac.


A Spanish style dinner followed, thanks to Altrincham-based Francs Restaurant. Compere Andy Ashworth helped to raise 10,000 in a grand auction.

A raffle netted a further 1,800 for the charity with the lucky winners taking away scores of wonderful prizes, including a hot air balloon ride and tickets to see Rhianna.

Break Latino then took the evening up a gear with a lively set and the dance floor was full until the early hours. DJ Grant Niblett then took over where the band left off, keeping the dancers moving until it was time for home
