The event, held at St Andrews Church Hall in Taunton, was attended by over 100 guests. Activities included a cake sale, face painting and a raffle, supported by local businesses.
Guests were also entertained by music played by pupils from Tone Woodwind Tuition, all of whom were sponsored as part of CLIC Sargent’s Practice-a-thon.
This alone raised over £2,000. Practice-a-thon is CLIC Sargent's music, drama and dance fundraising event for performers across the UK of all ages and abilities.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Mairi Wilson said: “I would like to say a massive thank you to Nicola, Carolyn, Alison and all those involved in this event. They raised a fantastic amount for CLIC Sargent and worked extremely hard.”
"The money raised from this event could fund a family to stay in one of our Homes from Home for three months.
These homes save families on average £2,140 and the average stay in a CLIC Sargent Home from Home is 23 days.
