Charity event at Lymm Water Tower raises thousands
Almost 100 guests who attended an exclusive event in Lymm raised thousands for a charity that provides vital health education in Africa.
The evening, themed ‘Inspirational Women’ and hosted by Jannette Harris, welcomed Lymm’s elite to the magnificent water tower, which has featured in numerous TV programmes, and has also won a RIBA Award for architecture.
Guests enjoyed canapés, supplied by chef Aiden Byrne, and champagne while listening to professional musicians Katherine Freeman on the piano and Meera Maharaj and Nichola Gerrard on the flute.
Opera singer Victoria Byron sang pieces from Carmen and Les Miserables.
One of the evening’s highlights was guest speaker Adele Pennington (pictured below) the only British woman to have climbed Mount Everest twice as well as five of the world’s 8,000m peaks.
More than £3,500 was raised for Act4Africa, the Altrincham-based charity founded by Kathy Smedley. The event was sponsored by J&S Motorcycle.
