It was a poignant evening at the Grosvenor Ho­tel in Ch­ester when the Car­diac Risk in the Young char­ity (CRY) held its an­nual ball. The event was or­gan­ised by Sue De­whirst from Oswestry and Deb­bie Dixon from Tar­por­ley to high­light the im­por­tant work that CRY does. Char­lotte Car­ney, who thanks to the screen­ing of­fered by CRY, was alerted to the fact that she had a heart de­fect and then re­ceived a trans­plant, was a spe­cial guest who show­cased the vi­tal work be­ing done. Alex Crowe en­ter­tained guests with his amaz­ing mind read­ing. The evening in­cluded a live auc­tion, hosted by Christina Tre­van­ion from Tre­van­ion and Dean Auc­tion house, which raised £18,000. Guests were able to bid on orig­i­nal art­work by Lyn Evans and a signed Freddie Flintoff cricket bat.
