Last night was our family charity evening, held at Great Harwood Golf Club, and what a resounding success the evening proved to be. Tickets sold out a few weeks prior to the event and there was standing room only. The room looked great, with pink and blue balloons on the tables and fairy lights adding to the exciting atmosphere. Everyone came with the intention of having a good time, and I don’t think they were disappointed! The evening was hosted by the Amazing Barrington Powell, who thrilled everyone with his magic tricks – how on earth did he get that £10 note into the kiwi fruit?! There was a crazy balloon race and a mad dancing competition which was won by a crazy parent from ward 84 dressed as Woody! There was a bottle tomobola which sold out within the first hour, and some great raffle prizes donated by some very generous businesses and friends. We also had a beautiful rainbow bear, the winner of the bear was the person who guessed the correct name, which was Belinda, named after Milly’s Tooth Fairy. Entertainment was also provided by Tom Muldoon, whose talent is simply amazing, he performed 4 songs which were breath taking, and his version of ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ was outstanding and an amazing tribute to Milly. There was lots of dancing, laughter and fun had by everyone, and a fantastic amount of money was also raised. In total £2362.72 was raised, and this will be matched by £1000 courtesy of Barclays Bank, making a final total of £3362.72. Huge thank you to everyone who attended, donated money and simply enjoyed their evening with us.
