With the help of a TV star, a Nelson company's charity mission finished with a bang at a fabulous auction and curry night.
ITV Granada’s Paul "Croney" Crone was the special celebrity guest helping Farnworth Rose to raise £2,034 for Pendleside Hospice last month - a charity which is close to the hearts of many of the company's employees.
And it was a double celebration at the Bombay Lounge, Barrowford - for it marked the business' 10th anniversary.
Director, Richard Farnworth, said: “When we began our fund-raising efforts in April, we had set the aim of raising £1,000 for the hospice.
"To have raised almost £6,000 is thanks to both the hard work of the team and the generosity of local businesses."
The evening topped off a series of 10 charity challenges over eight months, including car boot sales, pub walks and prison breaks.
Guests enjoyed a raffle, a balloon pop hosted by Paul Crone, music from the Furious Styles Duo, mind-boggling magic from Andrew Tunney and a three-course meal provided by the Bombay Lounge.
Special thanks go to everyone who supported the event and helped to make it a huge success, Richard added.
