We ‘Beat the Blues’

January 29th 2011!!  What a night!!  We really did ‘Beat the Blues’ with a fabulous action-packed evening at this, The Clabile Trust’s biggest fundraising event.

Guests arrived at the elegant Tithe Barn to be greeted with a glass of bubbly and music from the talented ‘Cash Cows’ Band.  The entertainment continued during reception and dinner as we were all mystified by the magic of Pip Kennedy.  Following dinner the amazing voices of Merryn, Peter and Andrew entered into the party atmosphere with a selection of popular operatic arias.  Dancing followed with music and stunning a light show provided by local DJ, Ross Winhall.

The quantity and quality of the prizes on offer ensured that a large number of guests, who generously dug deep into their pockets, later left the Tithe Barn with some outstanding prizes. 

Archers actor and local GP, Graham Blockey, performed the role of MC and auctioneer, whilst our patron, actress Jodie Whittaker, told guests how proud she was to be involved with a charity in which every penny gets directly to the people who really need it.

The Clabile Trust would like to thank everyone who joined us for the evening, the organising committee (Pauline, Angie, Cindy & Gillie), the performers and those who generously donated prizes for the evening.  

Thanks to our guests and supporters we raised over £8,500 during the evening.
