The Early Days
7th November 2009
This was a small personal event at home to celebrate Albert coming through his surgery and returning home. The appropriate date meant it revolved around a firework party. During an evening we arranged for guests to each, drink and be involved in several party games, for which we charged a small entry fee.
The Event raised £402.00
7th November 2010
This was similar to the initial event but was on a slightly larger scale with around 80 guests attending during the afternoon. The event revolved around Albert’s brothers Christening and a blessing for Albert at the local church. Rather than accepting gifts we asked for all guests to join in with the games and raffles, which included a “Pub Quiz”. There was also a children’s corner with lucky dip, and tombola. We were lucky enough to obtain a company contribution from EON for £400.00 under a scheme they run for charities.
The event raised a total of £1517.20
Over the past 18 months we have received substantial donations from:
