Thorneycroft Solicitors was proud sponsor of East Cheshire Hospice’s Under the Wings Ball on Saturday night.
Held in Concorde’s hangar, guests literally gathered beneath the iconic aircraft in aid to party the night away and raise much needed funds for the hospice.
The evening was compered by former radio personality Pete Pennington and there was entertainment throughout the night. One of the most poignant moments of the evening was from guest speaker Sarah Shackleton-Lamptey who spoke about her own personal experience of being diagnosed with secondary cancer and how the hospice has helped her to come to terms with diagnosis.
The evening raised a fantastic £62,000 to boost funds for this important cause – the equivalent of 10 days of hospice care.
East Cheshire Hospice, based in Macclesfield, and covering the whole of East Cheshire provides special care for adults suffering from life-limiting illnesses for which there is no cure.
The hospice is a registered charity and has to fundraise almost £6,000 every single day of the year simply to maintain its current service. Fiona will be talking about how local businesses can work together with East Cheshire Hospice to help them raise the funds required to provide the medical, emotional and spiritual support patients and their families require throughout what is often a difficult period.
