Glitzy fundraiser

Lancashire Life - - INTERVIEW -

Gen­er­ous guests dug deep when they at­tended the glitzy black tie ball at The Mid­land Ho­tel in Manch­ester for Pre­vent Breast Cancer. This is the only UK based breast cancer char­ity fund­ing ground break­ing re­search, which is aimed at pre­vent­ing the dis­ease for future gen­er­a­tions. The oc­ca­sion was hosted by Ali­son Bray and Kath Mcken­zie who both worked for Greater Manch­ester Po­lice, when Kath Mcken­zie was sadly di­ag­nosed with breast cancer. Af­ter re­ceiv­ing ex­cel­lent treat­ment at Wythen­shawe Hos­pi­tal’s world renowned Nightin­gale Cen­tre, Kath wanted to help the cause.

The evening started with a lively drinks re­cep­tion where jazz singer Rachel Ab­bott en­ter­tained guests. Af­ter a de­li­cious three course meal, guests took part in an auc­tion hosted by ac­tor Liam Fox where lo­cal busi­ness kindly do­nated prizes. The ball raised an in­cred­i­ble £20,000.
