Trust raises £30k for cancer charity
CHAMPAGNE ON ICE: More than £30,000 was raised at a ball to help pay for pioneering cancer treatment.
Around 400 people attended a stylish ice and diamonds evening at the Alton Towers Hotel in aid of the Stan Bowley Trust, organised in memory of a former police officer.
Alan 'Stan' Bowley, from Congleton, died in April last year at the age of 43 after a lengthy battle with cancer.
The father-of-three set up the charity trust in 2008 to help patients access CyberKnife, a robotic radiosurgery system that targets tumours without the need for open surgery.

Alan, who worked as an officer in Leek, travelled to the U.S. to receive Cyberknife treatment after he was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 34.
The trust's chairman Sally Coles-Robertson said: "We are really pleased with the amount raised.
"I am so grateful to Stan's brother Ian, for his outstanding commitment to the event."
