'Glitz and Glam' Ball raises £2k for Chorley charity
3:30pm Wednesday 18th December 2013 in Chorley
A new ‘care in the home’ business has raised more than £2,000 for the Chorley and South Ribble branch of Parkinson’s UK.
Clarriots Care held a ‘Glitz and Glam’ Ball at The Leyland Hotel attended by over 120 family, friends and sponsors in order to launch the business and raise awareness of the incurable condition.
Managing director Alastair Richardson said: “A close family member is affected by Parkinson’s. There are newly available drugs which help limit the symptoms but there is desperate need for research funding.”
The Chorley and South Ribble branch of Parkinson’s UK, which offers support, advice and help to suffers of the condition and meets at St Joseph’s parish centre in Chorley once a month, was grateful to receive the donation at their Christmas lunch.
Clarriots Care (Lancashire South) is based in Bamber Bridge and covers South Ribble, Chorley, Leyland and surrounding areas.
It is run by husband and wife team Alastair and Michelle Richardson.
