On October 10th 2009, I held a charity boat party on the River Thames. This was in aid of my close friend Andy Emery who sadly passed away in his sleep last year.
I organised a raffle and I was so pleased to have such fantastic prizes donated. A few to mention were; IMAX tickets at the Science Museum; Dorking Hall cinema tickets; Denbies Vineyard tour tickets; 6 months worth of Kit Kats and designer bags.
Because of the generous response for raffle donations, we chose to sell some of the items on the night. This, along with selling more raffle tickets, raised a total of £250.
60 people attended on the night, everyone enjoyed themselves and we all danced the night away!! The next morning I had friends and family telling me what a great night it was and how well it went. They also presented me with a large bunch of lillies for what I had achieved.
I really enjoyed organising this event and would consider doing it again sometime.
