The Friends of St Cross Summer Ball broke the fundraising records for the annual back tie event organised and hosted by Tracey Lennard and her great team.

One hundred guests enjoyed a superb meal catered by Chef’s Kitchen which was followed by an auction superbly conducted by Mike Folly, which raised £2,000. There was a raffle which raised another £640 and the total for the evening was an amazing £5,380. The after dinner entertainment was provided by local band The Beez and the guest danced until the small hours to the music played by DJs Mark Homer and Nick Clemons.

Kathryn Lawrence, Trustee of the Friends, thanked Tracey and her team for yet another great event and Tracey reported that many of the guests have already booked places for next year’s event which is likely to be another sell out – even though the date is yet to be fixed!
