What a swell party that was… and we raised over £5000 for Hospice Ethiopia!
Many thanks to everyone who came to the ‘Burger & Boogie 60s-style’ night for Hospice Ethiopia on June 15th. Now that the dust has settled we can reveal that the event raised over £5,000, which is a fabulous effort and testament to the generosity of all those who support us. Included in that are several kind donations from people who couldn’t attend the party itself, but wanted to help with the fund raising.
Special thanks also to everyone who helped, especially Lord and Lady Dannatt, who generously gave us the use of their beautiful home, and all the donors for the raffle and auction of promises. So many people gave freely of their time, including all our wonderful volunteers, our brilliant DJ Dan, and of course our demon auctioneer Dave Robinson.
Words can’t express how grateful we are to you all. As you know, the money will go to fund the wonderful work our friends at Hospice Ethiopia are carrying out. Your generosity will make a huge difference to desperate people.
