What a night! Fantastic result...£3654 raised!!!
We would like to say a huge thank you to all who have worked so hard to make last nights Auction such a success, In particular the incredible volunteers who have spent endless days getting things to their satisfaction. Sue, Nicola and Claire have all worked tirelessly beside Wendy, Cindy in the background with the website, all the kindness shown by so many offering astounding generous donations from far and wide, Elizabeth for her formidable posters advertising the event, those who shared their time helping to get everything done before the doors opened yesterday, our young runners for the evening, Ella, Tilly, Ruby and Katie, (what a super team they made too) the Gainsborough Hotel staff who laid out all the tables and chairs and making us so welcome and not forgetting the very talented and amusing Auctioneer himself...what can we say David...you entertained the floor with such enthusiasm and laughter, from the heart of FDR, thank you so very much to you all.
When we emailed the girls to congratulate and thank them this morning, plus enjoy their well earned rest, this was their reply, how proud and lucky we are to have you on board ladies...thank you :-)
We would like to say a huge thank you to Wendy - she has worked very hard and been the organiser. To the girls - Ella, Tilly, Ruby and Katie - who run their socks off and were lovely and charming with it. To Cindy and yourself for putting things on the website and Face Book. To all the ladies there last night helping to set up, take money, running the raffle, etc. To all the very generous people who donated items. To all the many people who came on the evening and supported us. To David, the Auctioneer, and to the Gainsborough Hotel for having us. And finally, Claire, Nicola and myself. We are very pleased and proud of ourselves for making this event such a great success for a fabulous charity! Roll on Stourport Carnival in September when we will do it all again!!
Gosh that sounds like an Oscar speech!! But seriously thank you everyone.
