A group of Southport fundraisers have held a summer event to raise more than ₤1,500 for local charity North West Cancer Research. More than 100 guests gathered on 5 July at the annual Summer Sparkle organised by the charity's Southport based fundraising group.

Tickets to the event cost ₤10, which included a chilled glass of bubbly upon arrival and a selection of canapes handmade made by the fundraising group.

Held in the residential garden of Alan and Heather Sidebottom on Brocklebank Road, the event featured variety of stalls, allowing guests to browse through silk arrangements, jewellery and homemade produce.

I'd like to thank the whole team involved who all contributed to the delicious homemade canapes and sourcing the wine on offer. We're all very grateful to Alan and Heather who kindly let us use their beautiful garden."
