Our first charity music event

Thanks to the generosity of everyone involved and everyone on the night, we raised and amazing:


But we've still more to come in, so that total will rise.

We danced, we sang, we had a great time and in the process made some new friends and raised some money. We'll turn everything we made from the bottle tombola, the meal-for-two tree, the lush curry feast and the shaky tins into research, awareness and support for people with Superficial Siderosis. We can't thank everyone enough.

We're grateful to:

All the family and friends who volunteered. Whether on the phone to local businesses getting tombola prizes, spending several days in the kitchen cooking or driving round collecting donated bottles - we've been bowled over by the valuable time and very special talents people have shared, just for us. Thank you.

In particular:

The Missy Nelson Band

Luckily for us, leading lady and upright bass player Jackie, also has a background in event planning and management. Along with her family, she was instrumental in making the night a success.

The band are a talented bunch too and they gave their performance as a donation. Different, stylish, fun - check out their Facebook page for bookings and plug in to their youtube playlist to find out more about their unique sound - Folsom Prison Blues is our favourite.

The Albion Tavern, Hale Road, Farnham

For the food, their time, the venue, the kitchen, their expertise - we're really grateful. They couldn't have been more generous. They're even giving us the proceeds from the meat raffle this month.

Always packed out for a roast on a Sunday, they serve huge, hearty plates of food. The Missy Nelson Band are regular visitors (both with and without their instruments), there's often entertainment and the patio is a warm, lively place to sit on summer evenings.

Our curry experts - Seema Fox with Alisha and Andy

While we were setting up front of house, Seema was in the kitchen making an authentic spicy chicken dish along with a warm yellow-pea dal. Eager punters milled around for a while before she and her team brought out the trays and laid them on the warmers along with rice, sides and poppadoms. 

Everyone walked away happy.

Seema also donated a couple of her home-made meals as prizes. She's thinking of sharing her food further afield this year - watch this space for more details.

And the local businesses who provided prizes:

Our next event is being planned right now. We'll keep you posted...
