On Saturday 29th June, we held our Summer Butterfly Ball in the beautiful grounds of Canford School for the first time and were delighted that so many of our supporters, both old and new came to join us on such a gorgeous sunny evening.
Thanks to our MC, Andy Taylor-Whyte of The Inspiration Bureau and some very generous bidders we were able to raise enough money through our present wall and auction in the marquee on the evening, to help pay for a full-time carer for a year! With money still coming in we look to have raised just under £70,000 in total from the entire event, we are absolutely delighted.
We also had wonderful support from Canford School, Quadrant2 Design, Barclays volunteers, Seventa and Galabid, as well as fabulous food by Molecular Magic and wonderful photos from Jon Bolton, our volunteer photographer. Thanks also to Farrow and Ball for providing the paper for our present wall.
Following some lovely compliments and feedback, we can't wait to do it all again, even bigger and better next year on the 27th June 2020, we hope that you can join us.
