Friends, staff and sup­port­ers of Clat­ter­bridge Can­cer Cen­tre cel­e­brated its 60th birth­day with a di­a­mond theme party at The Ti­tanic Ho­tel in Liver­pool. It was a star-stud­ded event too, as celebri­ties in­cluded foot­baller John Barnes, Mersey­side Mayor Steve Rotheram, Nisha Ka­tona, founder of Mowgli Street Food, and TV jour­nal­ist Ran­vir Singh.

The oc­ca­sion, hosted by Jay Hynd from The Guide Liver­pool and Cap­i­tal Ra­dio pre­sen­ter Gemma Cut­ting, raised over £150,000 from an auc­tion and raf­fle dur­ing the evening.

Ka­t­rina Bury, Head of The Clat­ter­bridge Can­cer Char­ity, said: ‘The money raised on the night will go a long way to trans­form­ing can­cer care for 2.3m peo­ple in Mersey­side and Cheshire.’

Prizes in­cluded a rose gold and di­a­mond neck­lace set and a hol­i­day in a French chateaux. Liver­pool Foot­ball Club’s Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Peter Moore took the bids for an ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity to be his guest at a match at An­field, in­clud­ing a tour of the ground, and a meet­ing with man­ager Jur­gen Klopp.

The money raised will help fund an area in the new hos­pi­tal that will pro­vide im­munother­apy treat­ment for can­cer pa­tients.
