Downton Abbey creator, Lord Fellowes, along with his wife, Lady Fellowes, welcomed hundreds of guests to this year’s “glamorous” themed Brainwave Oscars Ball held once again at the Mere Golf and Spa Hotel in Knutsford.  An amazing evening of dinner and dancing has meant that this year’s event has raised  £67,000.

Lord and Lady Fellowes are both Patrons of Brainwave which supports children with disabilities and additional needs in the North West and across the UK.

The Auction and raffle items from the Oscars themed night helped to achieve a grand total of £67,000 which will go directly to enable the specialist team at Brainwave to deliver life changing therapy to children with additional needs and disabilities.

North West Community Manager, Joanne Freeman said “We are thrilled to have raised a record amount of money at this year’s ball and we are overwhelmed at the support we have received.  A fantastic night was had by all who attended and great efforts were made to fully embrace the Oscars theme.”

Brainwave’s Chief Executive, Phil Edge said “I cannot thank everyone enough who was involved in making this year’s ball such a huge success and my special thanks go to our Patrons, Lord and Lady Fellowes.  Our support services work tirelessly to help children with achieving greater independence and enable them to reach their individual potential.  We are extremely grateful for the ongoing support we have received and look forward to seeing everyone at next year’s ball.”

The event took place at Mere Golf and Spa hotel was sponsored by LCM Wealth Management with support from Birchwood Shopping Centre and Hale & Didsbury Salutions Publishing.
