CAPTAIN'S DINNER AND DANCE - WEST MALLING GOLF CLUB
Updated: Nov 12, 2018
Last night, Saturday 10th November, two of our founding trustees (Natasha and Gemma) and our awesome designer (Tom) attended the 'End of Year Captain's Dinner Dance' at the West Malling Golf Club.
Originally we had a table of eight arranged, but as is always the case with volunteering, it is not always easy to secure time/childcare/good health within the team. But it remained important for us that some of the team, no matter how few or many, attended to show our gratitude to the wonderful Captains and members of the club.
We were invited to sit at the Lady Captain's table where we were treated to a wonderful three-course-meal surrounded by warm and friendly company. There was a huge raffle with some fantastic prizes, as well as a silent auction, both of which raised more than we ever dreamed they would.
Jill invited us to speak and Natasha 'took one for the team' and spoke to the room (with roughly 100 people) about who we are, why we continue to work like this, and just some of the families in need who the funds raised by the golf club will go on to support.
It is so important for us that we do not lose touch with incredible supporters like Jill and her fellow friends/players.
The evening finished brilliantly with two performances from ABBA Chique (who were UNBELIEVABLE) and a disco until midnight.
Once again we cannot say thank you enough to Jill and all at West Malling Golf Club for picking our small charity and for making us feel so welcome this past year. We are obsessively grateful for everything you have done xxx
Our beautiful mascot of course came along for the journey and enjoyed chilling out by the open fire, checking on the collection buckets, getting lots of cuddles with the Captains and ABBA Chique, and of course tasting the wine!
