STARS from the world of television, reality TV and music attended a glamorous Ladies Lunch to raise funds for disabled children.

Darius Campbell, singer, songwriter, musician, actor and film producer, hosted and performed at the exclusive event at the Mere Golf Resort and Spa.

The event raised more than £13,000 for Caudwell Children, the national charity which provides practical and emotional support to disabled children and their families.

Knutsford Guardian:

Funds raised through the afternoon will help Caudwell Children to continue providing specialist equipment, activity days, and in-home and in-hospital support to disabled children throughout the UK.

Darius said: “Caudwell Children’s services are vital in supporting disabled children.

“Without their help parents wouldn’t be able to afford the specialist equipment that they need for their children to lead happy, active and independent lives.

Knutsford Guardian:

“I really enjoyed the afternoon and l can’t thank those who attended enough form giving so generously and making it such a successful event.”

Kerrie Davies, associate director of events at Caudwell Children, said: “We’ve had fantastic support from our sponsors, supporters and ticket holders.

“Without their help our wonderful Cheshire ‘Ladies Lunch’ wouldn’t have happened.

“Darius is such a charming performer and he loved having a bit of flirty banter with the ladies.

Knutsford Guardian:

“He’s an accomplished singer and it’s no surprise he had so much success on and off the stage.

“The ladies loved his silky, smooth, crooning and it was beautifully matched by his relaxed delivery.

“He had the ladies in the palm of his hand and helped us raise a significant amount which will enable us to support even more disabled children in Cheshire.”

Guests also enjoyed a three-course lunch, raffle, auction and silent auction which contained luxurious prizes including a 5-star luxury holiday to Majorca.
