Lancashire Life - - PHOTOGRAPH­Y -

More than 300 guests at­tended a Vene­tian mas­quer­ade ball at the Im­pe­rial Ho­tel, Black­pool. They were there to show their sup­port for Black­pool Car­ers’ Cen­tre which pro­vides a range of ser­vices and sup­port for car­ers from the ages of 5 to 105 and their fam­i­lies across Black­pool and the Fylde. Guests in­cluded the Mayor and May­oress of Black­pool, Gary and Deb­bie Coleman, the High Sher­iff of Lan­cashire, An­thony At­tard, and Coronation Street star and Black­pool Car­ers’ Am­bas­sador, Lucy Fallon. Kay Soper, sup­port ser­vices man­ager, said: ‘Our won­der­ful sup­port­ers helped us raise £11,000. This year we have al­lo­cated the fund­ing to pro­vide respite for un­paid car­ers of all ages.

‘These valu­able ac­tiv­i­ties en­able our car­ers to cre­ate friend­ships, make happy mem­o­ries and cope with their self­less car­ing roles.’

‘Next year’s spe­cial Disco Ball will be on Satur­day Fe­bru­ary 1 at the Win­ter Gar­dens, Black­pool. It will be our 10th an­niver­sary Ball which also cel­e­brates the 15th

Birth­day of Black­pool Car­ers.’
