A huge thank you everyone who attended Friday’s fundraising event (2 March). Despite the awful recent weather, over 100 people came along to the village hall in Darley Abbey to enjoy a superb auction led by Charles Hanson who excelled in his auctioneering skills to raise a great sum towards our campaign.
2 March event
OARI would like to warmly thank Charles for coming out yesterday evening to run the auction and for everyone who placed bids.
Thanks also to local resident Caine for running the bar so smoothly - the bar is a local enterprise and Caine and his team do a variety of events, see: http://utterbarstewards.com
A big thanks also to an excellent provision of pizzas by regional company www.woodfiredpizzacompany.co.uk who fed us from their mobile wood fired pizza oven all night!
Thanks to Bezz and his disco, and also a big thank you to Sarah and Darley Abbey Village Stores for selling the tickets for the event, and to all local people who helped promote the night.
But the night could not have been a success without people coming along and spending money to raise funds for our campaign! So, a big thank you to you all once again, we’ll update a total very soon, and keep you posted on the next steps of the Judicial Review
We’d also like to thank all the sponsors who generously donated auction and raffle prizes, and stocked the bar so we could all have a brilliant evening.
