Today is the day that finally all the hard work and preparation has been geared to. It is the day of our Banana Crumb-Ball and everyone is looking forward to what will hopefully be a really great evening. The theme of the decoration is a secret but we are definitely trying to get the theme to link in with our fundraising charity The Southend Cystic Fibrosis Association and of course for it to be a Banana Crumb-Ball there must be some bananas but other than that we are keeping tight lipped and hoping that everyone will love how things look for the evening.
Outfits chosen, shirts ironed, shoes polished, Prosecco chilled, hair sprayed and all the last minute preparations will be underway. We will of course include plenty of photographs of the event in our future articles and will be able to update you with how much money we have raised. The Southend Cystic Fibrosis Association aims to provide equipment and services to improve the quality of life of those with CF in the Southend area. Once we have donated the money then we will tell you how they plan to spend the money.
Hopefully after the event everyone will be talking about what a great evening they have had and that we hope with all the raffle items, games and fundraising that people will not only have had a fantastic time but helped raise lots of funds but also come away with some goodies and mementos from the evening. Again we would like to say a huge thank you to all the companies that have helped us either by donating raffle or auction prizes.

Roll on this evening!!!
