Sarah Monk kicks off the fundraising event

The five fathers in The Four Fathers band rock the Hall!

The Parish Hall was the venue for a spiffy fundraising event last Saturday, 25 Sept 2010, for two great causes: Naomi House and Mityana Project.

Organiser Sarah Monk thanked the nearly hundred well-groomed and smartly dressed people who packed into the Hall for their generosity; she paid special tribute to several local businesses that helped make the evening a success: Paynes Printers and Dennetts Butchers.

The doctor is in the house!

Sarah also encouraged everyone to spend more money on the refreshments to help reach the £1000 fundraising goal. Volunteers sold drinks and served canapés throughout the fun-filled musical evening.

Update: The final tally was £1600 raised! Thanks go out to everyone who contributed!

Smile and play simultaneously? Impossible!

With Guy on the sound mixing board, the local 5 member band the Four Fathers took to the stage to wow the audience with their spiffy looks and sophisticated music, which ranged from Sinatra to Sting with a special, localised version of The Blues Brothers – complete with hat, glasses and words tailored to the evenings charities.

Smart dress for everyone!

A gaggle of Testbourne students and staff, along with the headteacher from the primary school, are heading out to Mityana, Uganda in October to visit the schools ours are ‘twinned’ with.

The Parish Hall was Packed!
