Newsletter - January 2017

It is difficult to describe the nail biting tension that precedes each of our fundraising endeavours. Will we get an audience? Will we break even? Will we make sufficient to enable us to help those who have no other source of assistance? Even with a brilliant group like ABBA Sensation there is always that niggling uncertainty. Fortunately the eternal attraction of that wonderful music won out and 180 people braved the bad weather to come out and enjoy themselves at QMC on the 21st. This is the fourth time that the Group has appeared for us and they certainly live up to their name. Their performance was electrifying and  the audience of took full advantage it by dancing with  great enthusiasm and almost as much skill. It was obviously thirsty work because they also made a very good attempt at drinking the bar dry and  bought raffle tickets like they were going out of fashion. The whole evening put everyone in great good humour  and gave a marvellous boost to our  Charity Account of £1250.
