Valentines Gala Dinner Success

Thanks to everyone’s generosity our Gala Dinner and Dance held on Friday 12th February 2016 was a huge success raising an incredible £5,434.66, exceeding ALL our targets and expectations!!!  Funds from the event will directly help support nearly 3,000 children’s education through our Stand in the Gap campaign!
100% of the money raised is going directly to support children and young people in education; in nursery, primary, secondary schools and through vocational training in East Africa. For these children, before our intervention, there was no one fighting their corner. Standing in the Gap means we believe in the potential that lies within.  It means supporting children from the age of 3 to 25 through their education and training through books, fees, uniform or lunches.  We want to continue to Stand in the Gap so each child/young person has the opportunity to thrive.
On behalf of all the children that will benefit from your generous support, we want to thank everyone who attended.  We would also like to thank the very generous individuals and organisations who donated an Auction lot or Raffle Prize including (In alphabetical order):
