The Scarborough Evening News - - WELCOME TO YOUR NEWS -

A mar­quee lit with 300 can­dles with red car­pet and ar­bours sparkling with fairy lights was the back­drop at Scar­bor­ough’s Wrea Head Hall Ho­tel for a Cham­pagne gala fund-raiser that raised more than £17,000 to two char­i­ties. More than 100 guests at­tended the black­tie ban­quet and auc­tion or­gan­ised by Anne Hodg­son and Peeter Ash­ton who wanted to raise funds into re­search for myeloma and breast/brain can­cers in mem­ory of their spouses, Martin and Win who died at 49 and 52. Anne, gen­eral man­ager of the Wrea Head Hall Ho­tel, said: “It was a fab­u­lous even­ing. We would like to thank all of those who at­tended for their gen­eros­ity and kind­ness. It sur­passed our wildest ex­pec­ta­tions.” Inset pic­ture: Wrea Head Hall own­ers Mark Giles and Gerry Abur­row, with Aimée Hodg­son.
