Stevenage Community Trust Annual Dinner and Dance 2016
4th November 2016
Due to its overwhelming success in 2015, our black-tie dinner and dance returned to the Wymondley Priory Barn during the evening of Friday 4th November 2016.
The event proved even more successful than the previous year raising an astounding £26,000. Our thanks go to everyone who supported the event , donated prizes for the auction and raffle and helped us to break our previous fundraising record from 2015.
Special thanks go to Gail Emms MBE for being such a fantastic speaker, Ewan Murray for spectacularly compering the evening, The Wine Society for providing the wine, Lara Norris from Home-Start and Bruce Carr from Remap for explaining how a grant from the Trust has helped their organisations and the people they support and finally, our key sponsors The Follett Office, Stevenage Packaging Ltd, HRJ Foreman Laws, Wagstaffs Chartered Accountants, Ian Campbell, Barnaby's Florists and Toppers Print and Design.
So with £25,000 raised in our 25th year and £26,000 raised in our 26th year, I'm sure you can guess our target for 2017!
