On 17th June Gayhurst School Parents association hosted their Hollywood Glamour Summer Ball – We were greeted by Hollywood paparazzi at the Prosecco & canape reception (sponsored by Southwood Research) and engulfed into glamorously dressed ladies and gents on the red carpet!
Dinner was provided by Splendiferous and really lived up to the name! I had the pleasure of sitting next to The Head Mr Davies, but what’s said at the Ball stays at the Ball! There was a great buzz all night and the dancing to iPop certainly got everyone moving.
I was accompanied by my Dad who had a fabulous time chatting and dancing the night away, the audience were very attentive to my talk and many auction prizes were won!
We would like to thank Debbie & the GPA for choosing to support William’s Fund and for all the hard work organising the ball. Thanks also to the other sponsors MJB Events who were superb and provided a classy venue and Strutt & Parker.
Gayhurst School also held other fundraisers for William’s Fund through out the term and I was privileged to speak to the children & staff at a school assembly. We are thrilled to announce a very large donation from the school.. best summed up by Debbie from the GPA…
” First of all, I’m really pleased to announce that the total fundraising from the summer ball was an impressive £18,500! Of that, £900 was pledged directly to William’s Fund, and the remainder will be split equally between William’s Fund and Gayhurst. The amount going to Gayhurst will be used towards new outdoor play equipment, which the school is already in the process of procuring. The children also raised another £890 for William’s Fund through their donations for Ties and Tiaras day and the Coin Challenge, bringing our total support for the charity to just over £10,500. Thank you so much for all of your, and your children’s, generous donations”
Obviously we are over the moon with this boost to our research funds… Thank you Gayhurst!
