GUESTS are invited to join celebrities at Knutsford’s Amber Lounge for an evening of glamour, fun and entertainment to raise money for a meningitis charity.

The VIP night will include an auction by Homes Under the Hammer’s Adam Partridge, celebrity guests and acts such as co-organiser Yvette Royle, Rosemary Quaye saxophonist and the UK’s leading Amy Winehouse tribute, Caroline Lowe.

Proceeds from tomorrow’s reception will go to Meningitis Now, a charity close to the heart of co-organiser Marco Dellapina.

“Lots of people, including myself and Yvette, have been affected by this terrible disease,” he said.

“My daughter Rosa had meningitis as a baby and it was a shocking experience. Fortunately she made a full recovery, but it’s something you never forget and we always try to raise awareness and help if we can.”

Marco has organised the evening with Yvette and Edge Events’ Lynette Cutler, and the trio are encouraging businesses to donate raffle prizes for a competition on the night.

“We are going around trying to get businesses and people to donate raffle prizes, and there’ll be a competition on the night,” added Marco.

Call 01565 634830 for reservations or to donate raffle prizes.
