What an amazing day.
I was so overwhelmed by the support and generosity of so many people.
From the day we started planning to the actual event itself, I received so much support and encouragement.
The prizes that were given, the time and skills from so many wonderful people and the money that we generated has left me speechless (which doesn't happen very often!)
We had delicious food served from the boys at the GPT.
We had incredible music from Dale, Mark and Tosh.
We had the amazing Tom from Killens auctioning our amazing prizes.
We had a fabulous turn out from so many of you.
We raised a truly astonishing £9,000.
And the sun even came out.
We filled the GPT back room with red helium balloons in memory of Helen Hodgkins who sadly passed away 6 years ago. Each balloon bought gave the chance of winning a prize and each balloon left was released and as they drifted away we remembered an amazing woman and the inspiration of this amazing charity.
I really can't thank everyone enough for making this event so special. So if you donated a prize, if you bought a ticket, bought a balloon, made a bid, gave your time or gave your skills, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
In one day we raised more than in the entire year of fundraising in 2014 it is truly amazing.
