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.
Pamela Greenhill, Friends of Lytham Hall spokesperson, presented Heritage Trust for the North West with a cheque for £10,000. This was the result of last year’s Masked Ball fantastic fundraising effort.
Pam said “I believe the evening was a great success. The people who came were very impressed and really enjoyed themselves and will spread the good word. There have been offers of sponsorship for the Silent Auction and raffle prizes, which are essential to the success of the Masked Ball as a fundraising effort for the Lytham Hall restoration project.”
