North West Hotel Chain Supports Local Research

English Lakes Hotels

Two Lancashire based hotels have recently shown their support to North West Cancer Research by hosting a number of exciting events.

The Midland hotel and Lancaster House, both part of the English Lakes Hotels group, have hosted unique events to raise money for life-saving research and help boost the profile of the Charity across Lancashire.

First up was Lancaster House who held an ‘Enchanted Evening’ wedding event in September. Guests were treated to cake samples, floristry
displays and music in preparation for their big day, as well as being entertained with a set from wedding DJ, Gary Mills, and a catwalk showcasing creations from renowned wedding dress designer, Jennifer Pritchard Couchman.

To top the evening off, all attendees were entered into a prize draw to win an entire wedding at Lancaster House, with a local couple announced as winners on the night. The event managed to raise an impressive £1,555.

A few months later, it was The Midland hotel’s turn to host their very own Gin & Rum Festival. The Morecambe based hotel treated guests to a great selection of gin and rum taste samples, as well as a special NWCR themed cocktail and entertainment from a live DJ.

Attendees were also in with a chance of winning a stay at The Midland, among other impressive prizes in the raffle but nobody left empty-handed as all guests were given a limited edition gin glass as a memento of the evening. The event raised £711 for life-saving research. 

Lee-Harry Hitchmough, Wedding & Events Manager of The Midland hotel said of the event: “When planning the Gin & Rum festival we knew we wanted to support a cause that was close to our hearts and would resonate with our customers – we certainly found that in NWCR!

“We worked closely with the team in the run up to the event and on the day, so it was fantastic to come together and raise over £700 for this
great cause.”
