THANKS to the people and organisations who kindly donated to the raffle , credits are listed in the leaflet which I will publish when the Bentons get back from holiday next week.
It hadn't dawned on me , with being busy being ill and delaying my own jobs, how much work had gone into with the arrangements until I turned up to help decorate the room. I know I am blessed with the amazing friends around me but I felt embarrassed by the committee team effort that went into things that I hadn't even thought of to make the evening the success it was. I think I managed to get to speak to most people and there have been a lot of compliments and photos flying around hailing the enjoyment. I was happy people came and we had a fab night but stunned with the fund raising on top of it all. Just show we know how we like to party.
I did do a little speech and whilst the ushers had been thanked, i.e. Holly, Clodagh and Mel, I neglected to say thank you to Holly for forming the idea from her party antics last year. So THANK YOU to Holly, I love you and didn't we have a ball!
