Stonyhurst Ladies Lunch at Northcote

Parents, former parents, grandparents and friends of Stonyhurst gathered for the Spring Ladies Lunch, held at Northcote Manor.

Funds raised at this event went to support the Stonyhurst Sports Club in replacing their lane ropes for the swimming pool.  Sports Club Manager, Carl Riley, spoke to our guests before lunch to explain why the new ropes were needed and to thank our guests for their support.

A beautiful diamond bracelet was donated by Sarah Layton Jewellers in Whalley, to help us in our fundraising effort, and we had some lovely prizes given to us for our raffle.  We were delighted to be able to raise £2,016 on the day for the Sports Club.

Our guests were also asked if they could bring along donations for the Ribble Valley Food Bank and we were completely overwhelmed by the response.  Thanks to the generosity of our guests we were able to donate an amazing 400 meals!

Our Christmas Ladies Lunch will be held at Stanley House on Thursday 1st December 2016.
