A truly ‘Great’ Gatsby fundraiser

Crewkerne community in Somerset dressed to impress at a Great Gatsby themed fundraising ball, raising thousands for CLIC Sargent.

A truly ‘Great’ Gatsby fundraiser

Over 200 guests enjoyed an evening of glitz and glamour at the stunning venue of Haselbury Mill, all generously contributing to the phenomenal total of £6,000 raised for CLIC Sargent.

A wonderful evening

It was a wonderful evening, raising funds with amazing auction prizes, including a life sized Wild Boar sculpture and a top spec mountain bike.

Guests also got involved with feather boas and clapper boards as raffle tickets – no creative thought was spared at this wonderful evening, all generously hosted by John Daniel, Suzanne Weekes and their friends and family.

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Hannah Worrall said: “The evening was such a huge success and had a wonderfully festive atmosphere.

“Thank you to everyone who contributed so generously to such an amazing total that will help children and young people with cancer live life to the full.”

The evening was supported by so many generous organisations donating spectacular raffle and auction prizes. Lloyds Bank also provided a donation of £2,500 to the evening, bringing the total up to a fantastic £8,320.
