Chester woman Jane White wins prize party at Day’s Hotel in Sealand

A CHESTER woman has celebrated her 40th birthday in style after a solo performance at last year’s Mold Food and Drink Festival.

Jane White, an occupational therapist, won a party worth £2,000 at the Day’s Inn Hotel, in Sealand, after dancing in a ‘Silent Disco’ in front of crowds at the Day’s Inn stand.

Mum-of-two Jane donned a set of headphones and an iPod and boogied down to the Black Eyed Peas on a metre square dance floor to impress judges and walk away with the party prize.

Sales co-ordinator Donna Trevor said: “Jane won because the whole family got involved.”

Jane added: “My husband and children were putting devil horns and feather boas on me and handing me things like an inflatable guitar.”

Jane’s prize was hire of The Imperial Suite with a resident DJ, balloons from Deeside Balloons, a hot buffet for 100 guests and a family room with breakfast. She chose a fancy dress party to celebrate her 40th birthday last Friday, the day before her actual birthday on Saturday, June 15.

She said: “I had a fantastic time and everyone said they enjoyed themselves. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and hospitable.”

Instead of presents, Jane asked friends to donate to the James (Jamie) Devaney Memorial Fund, in memory of four-year-old Halkyn youngster Jamie Devaney, who was struck down with a mystery illness while visiting Uganda last year with dad Jim and mum Avril, a colleague of Jane’s. The birthday party raised more than £500 for the charity. For more information visit www.justgiving. com/James-Jamie- Devaney.
