Lady Dodd attends Ladies Lunch for hospice

Lady Anne Dodd recently joined over 130 ladies from across St Helens and Knowsley at Willowbrook Hospice’s Ladies’ Lunch.

The annual event organised by Willowbrook Hospice’s Ladies’ Committee was held at the prestigious Knowsley Hall and raised over £12, 000 for the Prescot based hospice.

On arrival guests were greeted with a complimentary welcome drink and canapes courtesy of Houghwood Golf Course, followed by lovely two course lunch rounded off with tea, coffee and chocolates.

After lunch, guest speaker, Lady Anne Dodd, entertained guests with stories and memories of her life with the late Sir Ken Dodd.

Diane Swann, Senior Fundraiser at Willowbrook Hospice said, “The Ladies’ Lunch was a fantastic event with wonderful food, entertainment and company and, most importantly, raised a huge amount for Willowbrook Hospice.

“I would like to thank the Ladies’ Committee for their continued support and commitment to the hospice. I would also like to express our sincere thanks to Lady Dodd for her time, the staff and Knowsley Hall for making us feel so welcome and all of the businesses and supporters for their kind donations, including match funding from Barclays Bank”.
