On Friday 6 October 2017, the Development Department were proud to open the doors to this year’s Annual Gala Dinner and Auction. Guests were taken on a journey ‘Around the World’ starting with beautiful Latin music at the champagne and canape reception followed by a sumptuous meal with lots of entertainment. The highlight of the evening was, of course, the fabulous auctioneer – our very own Julia Hodgkins! With a gavel in-hand, the evening of live auction prizes was extremely well received, with lots of generous donors and fun bidding wars. The evening altogether made over £76,000 which will go directly towards our Bursary Fund.
