Wear It on Friday evening, 1 March was a huge success for 2 memorable reasons: our first ever fund raising event, bringing in approximately £370 and selling just over 80 tickets, as well as being a really fun evening that worked because so many people pulled together to make it all happen. The pictures below show how it all happened:
Hazel Stacey, President, who who worked with the committee to plan the evening, as well as being at the Congregational Hall in the afternoon and evening, helping to set out the catwalk, the stalls, making the punch and co-ordinating the refreshments. Hazel was helped by her neice, Samantha Stacey, who is training in event management.
