Blanc Ladies Day at Peak Edge Hotel

Blanc Occasions held a ‘Ladies Day’ at the Peak Edge Hotel last week in aid of their chosen charity Ashgate Hospice.  About 70 people were greeted by a glass of fizz, live saxophonist and a magician.

Everybody looked amazing with lots of fab outfits and hats (and that was just the ladies!)  A delicious two course lunch plus an afternoon tea which was served later kept everyone going as they placed their bets.  6 of the races were shown live.

Anne-Marie White owner of Blanc Occasions said ‘Everyone was a winner especially Ashgate Hospice as the day raised £2,400 for the charity.

I would like to thank everyone who came along and lets hope we can make it an annual event’.
