Old Anchors Aweigh

The Christmas Hop was a tremendous success. All 350 tickets were sold and we were turning people away at the door.  Hamish Stuart and the band were utterly brilliant and everyone had a great time. We sold masses more raffle tickets and gave away fourteen wonderful prizes.  And the best news is that after the various costs were paid, the event raised a heartening £3,897.70 for our funds.  That is a tremendous result, and we are very grateful to Ruby Promotions (James and Pippa Rubinstein) for putting the whole thing together – the idea, financing and organisation. So many thanks to them, to all the musicians, to the sound and lighting technicians, to the staff at the Alexander Centre, to the teams selling raffle tickets and promoting the Trust, to the people who gave such great raffle prizes, and to the public who were so generous in their support.  Maybe it will become an annual event along with the Autumn Barn Dance.

We are also grateful to Colin McGinn for allowing us to use his photos;
