Guests went the extra mile, dressed to impress in glittering style for St Catherine’s Hospice second sell-out Bollywood Night.

The charity teamed up with Preston-based Neesh Events to host the 
bling-tastic bash, with a feast of Indian food, entertainment full of singers, dancers and even a nod to the art of henna.

St Catherine’s summer marquee was transformed into an Indian-themed party scene and guests started with a drinks reception on the lawn, before enjoying Indian cuisine, followed by Bollywood dancing.

The dancefloor was filled with a sea of sparkle, sequins and colours when supporters were invited to learn some authentic Bollywood moves.

St Catherine’s fund-raiser Emma Jacovelli, who organised Bollywood Night, said: “It was great to see our guests taking the Indian theme on board and arriving in their saris.

“A sari-dressing service was provided on the night before the event took place, and people made donations to the charity.

“The night was fantastic, everyone made a real effort to get involved and have a go at the traditional Indian dancing.”

Writing on the charity’s Facebook page, guest Lesley Hacking said: “Great night for a wonderful charity. Can’t wait for next year. Thank you for being there for my mum when she needed your care and support.”
