BIG thanks to everyone who came on Saturday to the Friary , it was a great night, very busy, just over 180 folks in the room I think including the band & bar staff.  We raised £1,241 ( including the donation of £100 from A & J Stephen Builders) for the Azul Wasi project in Peru ( after outgoings which are just under £1120 to put the event on).  This is a FANTASTIC amount to help towards the new shower and toilet block at Azul Wasi.

So big thanks to everyone who brought along friends/ family and to those who kindly donated all the raffle prizes too. Also thanks to all those who helped on the night and before the event with posters etc.
