A bet­ter sport­ing chance

Lancashire Life - - Society -

The Wood­lands Suite at Ribby Hall in Wrea Green was the set­ting for the 19th an­nual char­ity fundrais­ing din­ner for the Richard J Wil­son Sports Foun­da­tion.

More than 160 guests en­joyed a glam­orous evening which fea­tured a de­li­cious din­ner, live en­ter­tain­ment and an auc­tion to help raise funds for the foun­da­tion.

The char­ity ball raised more than £9,000 which will go to­wards help­ing in­di­vid­u­als and sports clubs on the Fylde Coast to ful­fil their sport­ing po­ten­tial.

The foun­da­tion was cre­ated in mem­ory of Richard Wil­son, a tal­ented all-round sports­man, and for­mer cap­tain of Kirkham Gram­mar School’s rugby union team, who sadly passed away aged 19.
