Beechwood Cancer Care Centre held its annual Beautiful Butterflies fashion show and lunch at The Mere Resort in Knutsford.

The event was attended by over 200 guests. They were treated to an exciting show staged by Elise Smith Productions featuring the award-winning fashion emporium Sunday Best who gave their time freely to support the Stockport-based charity.

Actors Lee Boardman and Jennifer James, his wife, came along as Beechwood’s newest patrons and joined Chelsea Spokes from Key 103, who hosted the event. Lee gave an emotional speech about how cancer had affected his family and how Beechwood had helped his sister Suzy. The room was moved to tears between that and Sarah South’s story of the loss of her partner.

The highlight of the show, sponsored by Slater and Gordon legal firm, with a drinks reception sponsored by the Barefoot Wine Company, was the moment the models - all cancer patients - were led onto the catwalk by firemen from Stockport fire station.

Beechwood is now taking bookings for the Butterfly Ball on Saturday 15th June at The Point, at Lancashire County Cricket Club.
