Last Wednesday at the Crow Nest Park Golf Club a charity Christmas Evening was held with all welcome.
More than 25 local businesses held stalls, of which they all paid a fee that went straight to Dexter’s Light, the chosen charity.
Tickets were sold in advance but many came on the night, which resulted in more than 200 people attending.
Crow Nest Golf Club very generously donated the venue plus welcome drinks and canapés for people attending, and the band Rising Tide, who have become a firm favourite at this event, which was in its third year, yet again played completely free of charge to entertain everyone on the night.
An auction was held for a week in Windermere in the Lake District, which was again generously donated and raised £850 alone.
It was a fantastic night and, thanks to the generosity of so many people, they raised a whopping £3,350 for Dexter’s Light.
Dexter died in May this year. The charity Dexter’s Light is new and this event has got them off to a fantastic start to buy sensory equipment to loan out to different children’s centres.
