Another Charity Ball last Saturday for us at Venue 360. The room was transformed into a glittery arena for what was a very successful fundraising evening. Mary Seacole was a nurse during the Crimean War and although her rich patients paid, she treated the poor for free. Sponsored by Elmecom, the charity provides housing for single homeless people within the community amongst many other homeless projects.
The guests arrived to a champagne reception then took their seats for an evening of entertainment and prize giving. They chose a meal consisting of Leak & Potato Soup, Gruyere Toasty and Crispy Leeks; followed by a choice of Roasted Chicken Breast, Sage & Onion Stuffing, Bubble & Squeak, Seasonal Vegetables, Red Wine Jus or Roasted Salmon Fillet, Bubble & Squeak, Seasonal Vegetables, Dill Cream. Desert was a Vanilla Cheesecake with Raspberry Coulis and Honeycomb Shard.
An auction followed to raise money and then dancing completed the evening till they took their carriages at 1am. A great evening for us to be part of.
