A Grand Charity Ball was held in the brand new £13m Crow Wood Hotel & Spa Resort in aid of Pendleside Hospice.

This stunning new venue played host to over 360 guests and local dignitaries, who enjoyed a Prosecco reception accompanied by canapés, followed by a gourmet four-course dinner.

The event raised over £30,000 which has been donated to Pendleside Hospice. Pendleside Hospice spokesperson Christina Cope, said: “We are very grateful to Andrew Brown and the team at Crow Wood Hotel for organising this spectacular Charity Ball to raise funds for Pendleside Hospice. The guests were also very generous and we were delighted that the event raised an outstanding £30,000. Pendleside is a vital local service and this money will make a real difference to those living in our community who have a life-limiting illness.”

The black tie evening continued well into the early hours as guests enjoyed dancing to live entertainment provided by James Cockerill.

The new 76-room Crow Wood Hotel & Spa Resort, which opened in autumn, is the latest addition to Crow Wood. With a 400-capacity banqueting suite along with Crow Wood’s established reputation for good food and excellent service, the hotel has views of Pendle Hill and the surrounding countryside, a stunning ornamental lake, beautiful gardens and helipad.
