MORE than 150 guests dressed to impress at Nightingale House Hospice’s James Bond themed autumn ball, Diamonds are Forever.
The night was a huge success, with an estimated £7,500 raised, helping fund the specialist palliative care services.
The glitzy event was held in the Pavilion Suite at Chester racecourse and saw its many guests dance the night away to the Casino Royale Band and disco, play on the roulette wheel and enjoy a four-course dinner and champagne reception.
An array of fabulous prizes, such as a Porsche Boxter weekend with overnight stay at Crabwall Manor Hotel and Spa, a hot air balloon flight for two, signed Liverpool and Manchester United FC footballs, plus Ryan Giggs’ signed shirt, were on offer through auctions and raffles.
Louise Aubrey, events co-ordinator for the hospice, said: “We would like to thank, Chester racecourse, all our advertisers and everybody who kindly donated prizes towards the event, we could not have staged such a wonderful evening without them. An extra special ‘thank you’ also goes out all the guests for coming along and supporting Nightingale House Hospice. It was a wonderful evening and we look forward to hosting another one next year.”
