One of our grounds volunteers Sue Lowe wrote this for the Friends of Lytham Hall newsletter and we thought we would like to share it with you all!

Local fundraiser Emma Cox has come up with another exciting idea to raise funds for Brian House Children's Hospice on the Fylde Coast.

"The Tinkerbell Ball has been well attended every year, but this year I wanted an event that children would enjoy. Over 750 parents on Facebook have confirmed they are attending the event, and we are really excited!", Emma add

A special evening of support

On Thursday evening 16 April a special evening to generate support was held by the Friends of Lytham Hall in the run up to this year’s Masked Ball. Simon Thorpe, project manager for Lytham Hall management charity Heritage Trust for the North West, explained the current state of the restoration plans, and showed some of the areas which will be tackled, whilst long-term volunteer Beth Wilson gave a historic tour of the Hall.
