The Friends Of Bede's Prep Raise Thousands For Charity
On Saturday 16 March, the Friends of Bede's Prep held their Spring Ball at Blackstock Country Estate.
The event was in support of Ronald McDonald House in Brighton, a charity who support families with children in hospital. The FOBP have been supporting the charity throughout the year and the ball marks the end of the fundraising year and it certainly ended on a high.
The evening included a fabulous three course dinner and dancing, as well as an auction, a raffle and a silemt auction. There were some amazing auction lots on offer presented by our hosts Neil Lenham and Nick Muston, including a stay in a London hotel with theatre tickets, a weekend in the South of France, a stay in a lodge in Deveon and a stay in a Florida villa.
The generosity of both the donors and the bidders was overwhelming and the Friends were delighted to be able to present the charity with a cheque for £15,000 raised on the night.
This event simply couldn't have taken place without the committed, passionate and enthusiastic members of the FOBP committee and support from Bede's Prep School.
