Headway East Kent Gala Dinner 2019 – Fundraising at it’s finest!
Oh, how mighty oaks grow from little acorns!
On 25th May 2019, Folkestone Facilitators Paula McCormack and Nina Milton once again held their 8th Annual Gala Dinner in aid of Headway East Kent, an idea which Paula first had back in 2012 as a one-off event as a way of thanking one of our major supporters Face of Europe and The World. An evening of class and entertainment where all our guests get the opportunity to enjoy fine dining and get their glad rags on.
We have had great support each year organising our Gala Dinner, and this year was certainly no different. With many familiar faces as well as lots of new ones also, it was lovely to see the venue buzzing with over 100 guests in attendance.
With the generosity of many local businesses and individuals donating to our auction and raffle, and this year the added game of ‘Heads and Tails’, we are over the moon to announce the total we raised was……..£3,127.25.
Photographer and volunteer at our Canterbury branch Kevin Marlow of KVN Photography kindly donated his services to capture the magical moments of the evening, some of which you can see below. If you wish to see the full album please be sure to click on the link below;
Each year we like to ask a client to share their story with everyone on the night, this year we didn’t want to put any pressure on anyone to do this, but a very brave Folkestone client of ours put himself forward to share in his words his story and we would like to commend him and say how very proud of him we are – well done, Roger!
This just leaves us to say a huge thank you to everyone involved, who supported us and allowed us to host our Gala Dinner once again, and this just leaves us to say…SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!
