Friends of Bede's Prep Spring Ball Raises £13,000 for EBA
On Saturday 11 March, the Friends of Bede's Prep School held their biennial Spring Ball.
This year the Friends have been supporting The Early Birth Association, which is a charity supporting the families of premature babies in special care units, in Sussex.
The ball marks the end of the fundraising year and it certainly ended it on a high!
The event took place at Blackstock Country Estate, including a fabulous three course formal dinner and dancing.
The evening started with a game of 'Heads and Tails' and a raffle and silent auction followed.
There were some fantastic auction lots on offer, presented by our superb hosts Neil Lenham and Nick Muston, including dinner at The Ivy, an England rugby package, a helicopter tour and Donmar Warehouse Theatre tickets, to name a few.
The generosity of both the prize donors and bidders was overwhelming, and we were delighted to present the EBA with a cheque for over £13,000.
This event simply could not have taken place without the passionate, committed and enthusiastic members of the Friends of Bede’s Prep committee, so thank you to you all for your tremendously hard work.
