Thursday 28th September 2017 saw the official launch party for Banana Crumble and a celebration of the link up with our Charity of the Year The Cystic Fibrosis Trust. The event was held at Mangetout in Southend and over 60 people were in attendance.
The evening was a huge success with people hearing all about Banana Crumble and their crusade to bring a smile, some good news and positivity to the world. The guests also found out about Cystic Fibrosis with speeches from Sophie and Peter Holmes.
The whole evening was very yellow with huge inflatable bananas, banana themed decorations and of course the yellow of the Cystic Fibrosis Charity.
Mangetout laid on an amazing spread and even came up with banana themed deserts and cocktails. Certainly a great evening with loads of fun had by all. We have received the following messages “what an enjoyable evening for such a good cause”, “we had a super time last night – it was a privilege to be there”, “absolutely amazing night last night, so enjoyed it”.
Money was raised on the evening with a raffle. Raffle prizes were kindly donated by Mangetout, Nandos, Asda and of course Banana Crumble. Mangetout also kindly donated funds from the sales of their cocktails. In total since the actual launch of Banana Crumble on the 14th September the total raised so far is £377 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, with £252 being made at the launch party from the raffle.
Thanks to everyone for joining us and especially to Andy Sheard for being our photographer on the evening.
