Queen of Hearts Ball

Friday 5th July saw the climax of our 10th Anniversary Celebrations.

  qofh1The Rockliffqofh4e Suite was transformed into a sight to behold, with subtle lighting and beautiful centre pieces, provided by Adam Prest Florist, lead to an evening of magical entertainment, good food and excellent company.

BBC's Stephanie McGovern acted as Compere, treating the attendees to personal anecdotes and kept the evening on track beautifully.

Sarah-Jane Ethan performed of "The Power of Love" and Karen Heritage Dance Studio produced a specially choreographed dance to Jar of Freedom, starting with "Jar of Hearts" beautifully sung by Chloe Gray leading into "Freedom" Anthony Hamilton & Elayna Boynton.  Special Thanks to Chloe, Emily, Zoe, Kayleigh and Molly for their amazing portrayal which touched everyone's hearts.qofh2

The evening raised much needed funds for our Exploitation work through a croquet style tombola, raffle, silent auction and auction - match funded by Barclays Premier .  The evening raised over £13,000.

Thank you to all those who contributed by donating amazing prizes, too many to list, however personal thank you's are on there way.
