Annual Celebration & Dinner, September 29th 2018 at Durham Town Hall

Last night was our annual celebration & dinner at Durham Town Hall.

It was a great night and we shall know on Monday as to how much was raised but we must say Thank you to so many people, this will be like an Oscar speech and I apologies if I forget anyone on this first draft.

Firstly thank you to every one who donated to our silent Auction and to our live auction, we are so grateful, as without this we, well we couldn’t have had an auction but obviously this brings in a great amount of money for us.

Thank you to everyone who donated a prize for our Promise Tree.

Thank you to Beveridge’s nursery, Ebchester for the lovely donation of dahlias for our tables.

Thank you to all of the fantastic staff at Durham Town Hall, everyone was so friendly and helpful.

Thank you to Paul Richardson and his catering students from New College Durham, who did a fantastic job of making and serving the delicious food.

Thank you to Gerry Jackson for hosting our event and live auction.

Thank you to Stratosphonic for entertaining us all.

Thank you to all of our wonderful guests for coming along to the event and supporting Lifespan, you made it a fantastic night for us all.

Thank you to Lesley and Linda for setting up the art auction lots.

I have added some photos, so sorry but I didn’t manage to get a photo of one table, as the two times I was going to, someone was missing from the table, then I clearly forgot, sorry.

Have a fantastic Sunday.
