Westholme’s third biennial Bursary Ball
The third biennial Bursary Ball took place in the stunning surroundings of Stanley House on Saturday 26th May. The sun shone and spirits were high as one hundred and eighty guests arrived to enjoy a champagne reception.
A delicious dinner followed, accompanied by some superb music provided by Geno Eccles and his singers. The quick-fire raffle saw 50% of the guests winning prizes which had been kindly donated by a number of local businesses. After a few games, we then went into the silent and main auction. The main auction came to a thrilling climax with two rival bidders sending the value of a meal for ten, cooked in your home by well known chef, Victor Yu, to £2,000.
It was all in a fantastic cause, raising £15,250 in total towards our important Bursary Fund. This money will be used to bring disadvantaged children with a family of less than £15,000 into Westholme.
Thank you indeed to everyone who gave a prize, bought a ticket and gave time to help organise the event. It was much enjoyed by everyone!
