Oh What A Night .......

by Banana Crumble | Oct 07, 2019

We are really pleased to say that our first Banana Crumb-Ball was an overwhelming success with hopefully everyone having a great evening. We have been sorting out the monies today and are just waiting on a last auction prize before we can give a final amount but at the moment we are really pleased to say that our event on Saturday raised just under £4000. This amount of money should make a real difference to the Southend Cystic Fibrosis Association and we are looking forward to hearing how they plan on spending the money.

We all enjoyed a three course dinner, live music from The Hugh Rainey Dixieland Jazz Band which was all followed with lots of dancing to the Halfway House Resident DJ.

We would like to say a huge thank you not only to those who attended but to all those that donated raffle or auction prizes and helped to make the evening a success. Without the generosity of all of these companies raising this amazing amount would not have been possible so from all of us a huge thank you… We would like to say a really big thank you to Alton Garden Centre, Anna Holmes, Asda, Audi (Southend), BMW, C2C, Christine and Alan Hyde, Cut, Craft and Sew, Fortnum and Mason, Karl Miller, K. Mosby Financial Associates Limited, Liam Gillan Photography, Malibu Suncreams, Mangetout, Mark and Sarah Watson, Maria Nayler, Myatts Field Cocktail, Nekta Florists (Thorpe Bay), Old Southendian and Southchurch Cricket Club, Sam Brady, Sands by the Sea, Scott Hardisty and Pirtek Racing Team, Starstruck Autographs, Summerhill Garden Centre, Surf Restaurant (Chalkwell), Taylormade Chauffeurs, Validity, The Vanilla Room Hair and Beauty Salon (Hornchurch) who have all played a major part in either donating gifts for the raffle of for the fantastic auction prizes we have been able to offer.

A huge thank you to our Photographer Harry from Liam Gillan Photography – to see all our photos from the evening please click here. All photos taken on this evening have been donated free of charge by Liam to download.
