Funeral directors Knox & Son Ltd recently hosted a cabaret night in aid of its local hospital’s neonatal unit and the Ciaran’s Cause charity.
Ciaran’s Cause is a charity that honours a young boy from the local area who tragically passed away from heart complications while playing football on a school field. The charity aims to provide all schools and sports clubs in Warrington with a defibrillator in case of emergencies.
Local people, including staff from Knox & Son, provided the evening’s entertainment at the event, which raised £1,700 for the two charities.
Funeral workers Neil Aitken and Andy Greenwood performed an Andy Pandy and Looby Lou spot alongside a variety of singers that included Knox & Son’s Nick Curran performing as part of his group Reload.
Grappenhall & Thelwell British Legion gave up a room, free of charge, for the event to be held in. Besides the cabaret, other events such as bingo, a raffle, an auction, and disco took place.
Knox & Son would like to thank the many local businesses who donated raffle prizes which helped immensely towards the amount raised.
