Now a few weeks have passed, it’s high time to write and reflect on what a fantastic evening we all had on the 23rd March!

Well, we were certainly well fed and watered by Fran and her team at Julia Robinson Catering and wonderfully cossetted by Sarah and her team at the Brighton Pavilion – which was great as it was freezing outside! After welcome drinks in the old kitchen and a great private tour (emphasising the Indian side of things) it was time for dinner…

Everything looked great and the tables were augmented by herds of elephants to add to the Indian and Chinese style decor – that is we were selling miniature elephants instead of raffle tickets for the glorious prizes on offer! We also had a small selection of goodies from our Steyning shop on sale that seemed to go down well, all to the background of some wonderful harp music played by the gorgeous Andrew. And the ladies (and a couple of guys) won’t forget the amazing henna designs by local artist Sylvi either!

So as well as the money raised from ticket sales, we managed to raise fifteen hundred pounds! Well done everybody! This is certainly enough to get the first year’s scholarship off to a great launch (and there is even some left over to donate some engineering books to the Don Bosco Technical Library!).

Thanks to all of you that sponsored and donated in any form and manner – it’s help like this that makes our events so possible.


It’s a year since dad passed away this weekend, so I’m really glad we’ve managed to do this in his name!
