Our Chairman Mike Jackson commented:
“We are grateful to our two main sponsors Platinum Lace, and The Player Magazine for their support and for helping to make the day such a success. We got some outstanding celebrity support for the event and we had some great support from Hanbury Manor who hosted it. In the end we raised £22,000 and from our point of view that is outstanding.”
