A great night out to remember

We had an absolutely amazing night at our fundraiser on the 22nd September.  I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone for coming and giving so generously.  I'd also like to thank Miss Hollywood for keeping us all entertained and the Ravensdene Lodge for doing such a great job putting on our event.

It was a brilliant night and we had 127 guests of who commented that they all had a wonderful time and are looking forward to the next event.

Unfortunately Raymond could not make it due to ill health but my son Ryan came along for support and also manned the camera for the night.  He did a great job and was such a help.

Altogether we raised the fantastic sum of £1,351.00 which was totally overwhelming, I can’t express enough how grateful I am for everyone’s support not just from those who attended but also those who couldn’t make it on the night and still kindly made donations towards the evening.

The money raised will be going towards the running costs of the three Emmanuel House Holiday Homes will that we have purchased up in Weardale where cancer sufferers, the terminally ill and their families can go to for respite care completely free of charge.

Once again many cancer patients and their families have been away to our holiday homes this year and have all had the most marvellous time.

It was great to see so many familiar faces and catch up with everyone.  Miss Hollywood was a super star as always and had the crowd dancing and singing along.

I will be organising another event for a later date and will keep you all informed of the details. So thank you once again for your help and support over the years as I really do appreciate it.

God Bless and take care.
