SOME OF THE CHARITIES THAT WE HAVE RAISED MONEY FOR OVER THE LAST FIVE YEARS ARE ON THIS PAGE

We have spent a lot of time and effort on Charity Events over these past Five years or so raising money for the many charities listed below. At the end of 2018... the total was close to £20,000. This is quite a considerable sum of money to have raised. This was only possible by making the events self-funding by advertising and sponsorship from local and National companies. You can see from the photos on the GALLERY page just how successful some of them were.
In 2018... we tried to carry on supporting the local hospital "Brighter Futures" Appeal by hosting an event in May at the Cricklade Town Hall. Again we had local sponsorship for paying the band ,printing, admin, and hire of facilities... which meant all the tickets sales and donations, raffle money etc would go to the charity. We were hoping to raise at least £1000 for the hospital... the tickets went on sale in March ...the public had 10 weeks in which to buy... online sales as well were available...the event was publicised all over....we sold only 4 tickets and had to cancel the event... after all that work! You will understand now...why I feel so sad!
I took a short break for a while with Charity Events work to concentrate on other projects within the Big Band music world...a genre that I have always had a passion for... and have danced to for most of my adult life.
In conjunction with a partner company Cotswold Events....a 'Summer Ball' is being planned for the month of July 2019.... details will appear very soon on the EVENTS page! I also have a LINE DANCE CHARITY SOCIAL planned too....
