A Lunch for St Ann's.
Leading figures from the world of sport and business gathered at the Mere Golf Resort and Spa for a special lunch in aid of St Ann’s Hospice in Sale.
The event was organised by Pat Loftus, Vice Chairman of Deloitte, and raised £13,000 for the charity where his mother was a volunteer for many years.
Guests of honour was Linzi Prescott, wife of the former St Helens Rugby League player Steve, who died just over a year ago after a seven-year battle with a rare form of stomach cancer.

Pat said: ‘St Ann’s has cared for several of my close friends and I’d like to thank the business community for rallying round such a great cause. The hospice helps people with life-limiting illnesses and Steve was an inspiration to us all despite suffering from such a serious condition.’
