Ladies carry on cruising
APPLEY Bridge Community Association’s Ladies Night saw more than 90 would-be Kate Winslets, including many members of the All Saints Church family, wining, dining and dancing in a cruise-themed evening on Friday, September 29 at the community centre on Appley Lane North.
The night was held in aid of Macmillan Cancer Care and Appley Bridge Community Association and raised a total of £1,006 via ticket sales, raffle and art auction.
The community centre was transformed into a luxury liner, and guests were welcomed by a Scottish piper and drummer.
The ladies enjoyed a bucks fizz reception followed by lasagne and salad, rounded off with Eton Mess for dessert and DJ Danny of Team Theme provided the music.
Chair of the organising committee Mrs Naomi Joyce said: “This was our first ladies night and it proved to be a resounding success so we hope to hold a similar event in the not too distant future.
“Our next fundraising event is Appley Bridge Christmas Market on Sunday, November 19.
“We were very keen to promote the bonds of friendship and community in our village, but remained a little bit nervous that we might not be able to pull off a Ladies’ Night in our community centre.
“We needn’t have worried, as the ladies of Appley Bridge certainly know how to party and fully embraced the evening, making it a resounding success!”
