Chinese banquet in Southport to raise funds for North West Cancer Research

A Southport-based fundraising group is hosting a Chinese feast to raise funds for local charity, North West Cancer Research.

Now in its fourth year, the Chinese banquet has established itself as a popular event in the community’s social calendar. This year’s event will be held on September 16 at Ho Lee Chow restaurant on Rotten Row, Southport. Doors open 7pm and the festivities will begin at 7.30pm.

All proceeds will be donated to North West Cancer Research to support scientists at the University of Liverpool who are working to improve our understanding of cancer and how to better diagnose, treat and prevent it.

Tickets for the event cost £25 per person and there is the option to purchase group tables for eight to ten people. The evening will also include a raffle, with top prizes kindly donated by the committee’s members and local businesses.

Olive Cutts, chair of the Southport fundraising committee, said: “Guests can expect a night of fun, lively entertainment and tasty Chinese food. Best of all, by buying a ticket you will help us raise money for North West Cancer Research, funds lifesaving cancer research.

“This is one of the most popular events in our fundraising calendar and we are very much looking forward to it.  The people of Southport are always so supportive of our events and help to make them the great success they always are.”

Tickets are available to buy from Olive Cutts on 01704 807857 or Ho Lee Chows, Rotten Row, Southport.

North West Cancer Research has committed to funding more than £13 million worth of cancer research over the next five years – approximately £9 million of which will be spent at nearby University of Liverpool.
