MORE than 500 guests were treated to an evening of Mediterranean food and entertainment when they attended the Snowflake Ball at Mere Golf and Country Club.

A small but dedicated group created an atmosphere of Fiesta Latino including the Royles who provided specially themed decorations.

Invitees congregated for a champagne and canape reception followed by dinner and a seven-piece salsa band and dancing troupe who dazzled the crowd.

Host Darren Procter, of Key 103, and DJ Steve Gadd then kept the party going until 3am.

The special event helped raise more than £25,000 for NSPCC to help combat child abuse in Cheshire.
