2017 Dinner and Dance fundraiser breaks record
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.
