SHAMELESS star Alice Barry will be meeting fans at a glitzy charity night at Bolton Whites Hotel.

Best known for playing Lillian Tyler in the award winning show, the star has also appeared in Benidorm and Coronation Street.

Fans will not only get the chance to meet her but there will be book signings, posing for pictures, a three-course dinner and she will be hosting an auction to raise as much money as she can for The Christie, which is a cause close to her heart.

Alice said: “We have supported The Christie charity for many years now, ever since they looked after my husband more than 40 years ago, when he received life- saving treatment at the hospital.

“The Christie Charity has some great fundraising events and I’m glad to be able to support them even more with our special evening in July.

“The event at Bolton Whites will be a fun and intimate evening, with great food, dancing and some special guest appearances to make the night go with a bang.”

Senior fundraising manager at The Christie charity, Fiona Ashcroft said: “We’re extremely grateful to Alice and to the Bolton Whites Hotel for hosting this event for our charity.

“It sounds like it will be a truly fantastic and enjoyable evening and we hope as many people as possible support it.

“Money raised will help pay for vital developments, specialist equipment and fund extra patient services here at The Christie.”

Tickets for the night, on July 5, cost £35.
