After the success of last year’s Charity ball in trying to raise money for Ellie Morgan we set our sights on trying to help another cause this year. We didn’t have to look far as one of our very good customers came to us about their grandson Jacob who also has cerebral palsy. Just like Ellie we felt as though this was such a worthwhile reason to help raise some much needed funds.
Little Jacob has been fortunate so far in the sense that his doting parents have already raised money for him to have an operation in America. The operation was successful, however he still needs ongoing physiotherapy to help Jacob learn how to walk. This treatment will be needed for maybe a few more years and is very expensive. We are hoping that the money we raise will make a small difference and that collectively the help from generous people will make a difference to Jacob when he is older.
The Summer Ball was a resounding success with everyone making a huge effort to look their best. Our very good friend and singer Paddy Edgar came along and sung on the evening entertaining our guests with his beautiful voice and his charismatic personality. We had a stunning buffet of food prepared by our chefs and the venue was dressed to match the glamour of our guests.
We had a raffle and an auction and were able to raise a staggering amount…….well we thought it was as we are only a small venue. The generosity of our customers is very much appreciated. The final total after running another raffle for a few weeks was £3,715!!! Thank you so much everybody.
