An Evening with Alistair Barrie
11th December 2019
Alistair Barrie returned to Hertford Theatre again to raise funds for our local Breast Cancer Unit. Everyone enjoyed the evening which was full of fun and lots of jokes. As the photograph shows there were smiles all round and we are very grateful to Alistair for giving of his time and his talents to support us again. The fantastic total raised, including ticket sales, was £9000.10.
Afternoon Tea at The White House
2nd September 2019
We had a delightful Afternoon Tea in a beautiful garden on a sunny September day. The event was a sell out with a waiting list and the day didn’t disappoint. The marquee was generously lent to us after the birthday party for a 100 year old grandmother – and the birthday girl joined the tea party as well! Tea was served in china tea sets, so kindly lent to us by a supporter, each with a spot of pink in their colours to reflect our cause. Cucumber, salmon and egg sandwiches followed by strawberry tarts, coffee cakes, bakewell tarts and cream scones were enjoyed by everyone. After tea there was a talk from Jennie Billings, Image Consultant from House of Colour who spoke about ‘learning how to feel better in your clothes’. We raised in excess of £4000 which was a great total for this event.
27th April 2019
On 27th April we held our wonderful Ceilidh at Tewinbury Farm. Guests were treated to Champagne followed by a delicious supper and wine. Dancing continued well in to the night and our helpful caller led us through each dance. We mastered the Gay Gordons, the Dashing White Sargent and an Orcadian Strip the Willow- among others! Lots of fun was had in the raffle and auction as well as raising money for Breast Cancer research. In total we raised £16,600 which was a fabulous amount. Thanks to our gracious sponsors and to the many donations which came in before the event. Thanks also for those who raised money on the night. It was a wonderful effort and we are grateful to everyone who took part.
