BIG THANKS to EVERYONE who came on Saturday to support the Latin Quarter Charity night with the fantastic live band Son Sabroso @ The Friary. Special thanks to those that came from further afield too.. Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Manchester ! etc, there were about 125 people who attended.

We raised a total of £869 (after all outgoings) which is great, for the Azul Wasi project in Peru, home for former street children. Many thanks to the 2 sponsors of the evening, A&J Stephen (Builders) Ltd and Wilson Construction (Perth) Ltd, and big thanks to the Bepoke Bar Company who provided free bar hire. Big thanks to Audiowave, Mitch, Louise & Denni for sound, The Friary, SAS advertising for free run of advertising & Grouchos, Vanessa & Fiona for ticket sales. Many thanks to Patrick, Pawel & Pamela for doing the door on the night and to Pawel for printing the lovely table information and to Tom Jolly who couldn’t be with us but made up the lovely Azul Wasi courier update on the tables (attached).

MASSIVE thanks to Son Sabroso for bringing some latin spirit to warm us up on a rainy Dundee night with their great music & vocals and party atmosphere.

Would also like to thank those who helped on the night with the raffle and for all the raffle donations : thanks to Achray Farm Air bnb, The Peruvian Restaurant, V&A museam, Parcari Chocolates, Clara for the Balinese Massage & Johan for the massage vouchers, Sol y Sombra, Fiona M and to everyone else who gave donations.
