2017 Dinner and Dance fundraiser breaks record

8th November 2017

The dinner and dance is our main fundraiser each year. Two years ago we managed to raise £25k in our 25th year, last year we reached our target of raising £26k in our 26th year so this year we aimed to raise £27k in our 27th year. We were therefore thrilled that we surpassed our target and reached £28,100.

Chair of the Trust Robert Stewart said "For the third consecutive year the kind, generous sponsors and guests at our annual black tie dinner and dance helped the Stevenage Community Trust to reach another record breaking amount for one single event beating last year’s total of £26,000.

Whilst the result of £28,100 is a collaborative effort, Adrian and Jennie Hawkins and  of Weldability and Simon and Pam Galbraith of Redgate Software’s magnanimous support along with so many others helped us realise these new heights – thank you.

To be able to do so with our Founder Hilda Lawrence’s son Paul in attendance along with our evergreen former director Tom Johnson MBE was even more special. To top all of this off our guest speaker Roz Savage inspired us all with her vivid stories of how she single-handedly rowed across the Atlantic, Pacific and the Indian Oceans – truly an amazing evening with all the monies raised helping those in need with our community."
