As well as enjoying the talents of the London Festival Opera perform highlights from Pucccini’s Tosca, guests participated and gave generously to a raffle and exciting auction in aid of CLIC Sargent.

Following the emotional performance, guests bid on prizes which included a holiday to the Gambia, kindly donated by action coach Suzanne Macdonald Carr, and a luxury portrait shoot from Penny Morgan Photography.

So proud to help

Caroline Spurrier, owner of Crow's Hall, said: “I’m so proud to be able to help this worthy charity and am thrilled that so much has been raised these past three years.

“We have all been touched in some way by cancer and I personally know several people who have benefited from the support CLIC Sargent gives, and I have seen the major difference it makes to these families.

The three year partnership has seen Opera in the Barn raise £8,000 for children and young people with cancer. 

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Daisy Turner said: “We are incredibly grateful to Caroline, her team and all the volunteers on the night for all their hard work and commitment to raising money – every penny raised will help provide vital support for children and young people with cancer, and their families both in Suffolk and across the UK.”
