|Richard Churcher Foundation|
Over 170 people from the Churcher's community came together for the inaugural Foundation Summer Party, which was a phenomenal success and raised over £25,000 for the Richard Churcher Foundation and the provision of bursaries.
Generously hosted offsite by current parents, with support from the Development Office and a team of parent volunteers, the event succeeded in its main aims to raise awareness of the Foundation and what it does, raise some much needed income and make sure that everyone had a lot of fun at the same time!
The evening kicked off with OC Rosie Botham (19) providing musical accompaniment whilst guests arrived, collected their auction brochure and picked up their welcome cocktail. With a beautifully decorated marquee, superb weather and Churcher's staff member and quiz master Ian Crossman standing in as mc for the night, there was an incredible atmosphere throughout the evening.
Guests raised funds for the Foundation by making a pledge, 'signing up' to a Churcher's community party, bidding on the silent auction or, for those a little braver, bidding for one of the unique experiences in the live auction.
Huge thanks first and foremost to our hosts, but also to everyone who helped to make the event such a success, whether volunteering, working on the night, donating an experience, bidding or just by being there and dancing the night away..! I hope you all agree, it was more than worth it...
