Forbes Solicitors recently supported a charity dinner at Newton Village Hall, to support Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
The three course dinner, which was prepared by chefs from Slaidburn's Hark to Bounty inn, was attended by more than 100 guests, who also enjoyed music from the duo Just.
The evening was organised by the village hall committee as an annual get-together, which each year supports a different charity. Chairman of the committee, John Bennett, Partner at Forbes Solicitors said: "We chose to support Rosemere this year as it's been there for a number of local people recently."
He added: "As a local company, we try to support charities working within the community. We therefore wanted to help Rosemere in its efforts to generate funding for projects important to local cancer patients during their treatment."
Rosemere Cancer Foundation fundraises to bring world class cancer treatment and services to local cancer patients via their local hospital by buying vital equipment and funding research and training that the NHS is unable to fund. It also works to provide free access to complementary therapies for all those going through treatment and make the surroundings in which treatment is given more patient-friendly.
