CHESHIRE party goers turned out in full force this weekend when more than 400 people attended an unforgettable event held at the Leverhulme Hotel and Spa in Port Sunlight, Wirral for a special cause.
Olly’s Ball was held in aid of CLIC Sargent, the national charity that helps teenagers and young people with cancer.
Olivia Battye was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma (bone cancer) in January 2009.
Since then she has become an ambassador for the charity whilst recovering from her illness, even meeting Cherie Blair, CLIC Sargent’s patron.
Olly has worked relentlessly to raise awareness for this cause, culminating in Saturday night’s spectacle which was a huge success.
Auction and raffle prizes were donated by some of Chester’s well known names, including an England rugby shirt given by Ben Foden.
The well known jewellery designer Chloe Moss created an exclusive bracelet especially for the occasion and local artist Lucia Fraser painted a picture specifically for the auction.
Other donations included a diamond pendant offered by Boodle and Dunthorne and one days training with Manchester City FC.
Olivia is now supporting her sister who is running the London Marathon in April.
