Local ladies raise ₤9560 for Hospice

200 ladies from across Merseyside got dressed in their best, on Sunday, 14 May 2017, to attended a party the afternoon at the St. Joseph's Hospice Spring Ladies Day and raised a staggering ₤9,560.

A few drinks and a sumptuous 3 course lunch gave way to an afternoon of pampering, shopping and dancing but the main focus of the afternoon was to raise as much money as possible for St. Joseph's Hospice.

TV presenter and Broadcaster, Debi Jones, hosted the day, and kept everyone going on the dance floor. She also encouraged everyone to dig deep for the chance to win a range of stunning prizes.

Singer, James Franklyn, and DJ, Jeff Wall, kept everyone entertained throughout the afternoon with a wide range of hits from across the decades which got everyone up on their feet and singing.

A number of local businesses supported the event, including Investec, who sponsored the raffle; The Christmas Decorators, who donated a beautiful kissing arch; and all the stall holders and therapists.

Laura Smith, fundraiser at St Joseph's Hospice who organised the event, said:- "Our ladies did us proud yet again. The atmosphere was fantastic and we even managed to book the sunshine this year. I want to say a really big thank you to our match funders from Barclays and Barclaycard, as well as local businesses from Crosby, Formby and Maghull which donated money and prizes. Also to our host Debi Jones, Singer James Franklyn, DJ Jeff Wall and all the staff at Formby Hall who worked hard to make sure the event ran smoothly. However, the final word of thanks must go to everyone who came along on the day. All our glamorous ladies support this, and many other events, year after year and they all helped to make the day such a big success."
