Cheshire Ladies Philanthropy Club Luncheon

Cheshire Ladies Philanthropy Club Luncheon

It's all in days work for the Cheshire 'ladies who lunch' with the annual Cheshire Ladies Philanthropy Club luncheon in April raising thousands for local charities through the Cheshire Community Foundation.

Founded by a small committee of women, three years ago, and with Pat McMillan as chair, the Cheshire Ladies Philanthropy Club aims to help local charities where funding can really make a difference to the quality of lives to women and children in Cheshire and is one of 48 Community Foundationorganisations around the UK to help others in need.

Q&A with Julia Somerville, Rula Lenska and Liz Taylor

Whilst enjoying lunch and shopping at the exquisite Mere Golf Resort & Spa, guests were entertained by the charity's very own Loose Women - Rula Lenska and Liz Taylor - and hosted by Julia Somerville who set the tone with their individual takes on life and living. There was fashion from Runway and an amazing auction too.

The event, however fun, did not forget to remind us where the money raised last year had already been making a difference. Indeed, Cheshire Search and Rescue Team were on hand with their Philanthropy Club funded new vehicle, The Cheshire Lady, already saving lives.

There was a video from mums and dads from Space in Chester, a place providing social support for new parents and children and messages of thanks from all the other charities; Circle Dance Group in Macclesfield, Action for Mother and Baby Unit at Styal Prison, Burtonwood Sewing Group, Hampers for Hope, Ruby's Fund and Styal Village Community Store.

Thank you to everyone who supported and attended the event and we look forward to hearing more about how the money raised has helped more communities in Cheshire.
