A picnic and Proms sing-along family event held at Broughton House raised £4,000.

The Lancashire Artillery Band and veterans’ sweetheart Sarah Dennis were among the performers at the event, which was sponsored by Local Care Force, R Noone & Son and Creamline Dairies.

It was backed by a £250 grant from the Greater Manchester High Sheriff’s Police Trust from its We Stand Together fund, which was set up following the Manchester Arena terror attack to support events that bring together communities.

Ty Platten, chief executive of Broughton House, said: “Our event followed The Last Night of the Proms and gave local people the opportunity to continue that spirit at Broughton House.

“We’re grateful to our sponsors and to the Trust for their support for what was a memorable event that provided a tremendous boost to Broughton House.”
