A huge Thank you to everyone who braved the rain!
Torrential rain could not dampen the spirits of the audience at Martha Trust’s Prom, held at The Salutation in Sandwich – home to Dom and Steph Parker of Channel 4’s Gogglebox fame.
Despite Sunday’s soggy weather, the audience showed great support to a diverse line up of local musicians, including Wayne Bridle, Steve Aiston and the Midnight Crawlers.
When it came to the charity auction, run with great skill and humour by Dom and Steph, the crowd showed remarkable generosity, bidding on lots which included a stay at The Salutation, a Magical Mystery Tour of London in a black cab donated by Paul Benzekan and a portrait by talented local artist Joseph Sevier.
After the event, Dom said ‘We are delighted to be able to support Martha Trust for a fourth year. We have been amazed by the determination of everyone who attended to ignore the conditions and really get behind this fabulous fundraising event for a very deserving local cause.’
Crucial to the success of the event was sponsorship from local organisations Discovery Park and A Pearson Growers, plus an additional donation through the Barclays Matched Fundraising programme. Not to be forgotten was the help from a band of dedicated volunteers who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the event ran smoothly.
Everyone’s efforts proved to be very worthwhile, as the event raised an amazing £6,000 towards our work
