Saturday past turned out to be a pretty amazing day.
We held our Ripple Ball – a fun successful night with our Patron Grant Stott as host and his friends Allan Stewart and Andy Gray joining in the fun.
Our fabulous Johnny Ca$h Coo getting us £14250!
The night felt almost like a lovely family party.
Earlier in the evening I had the privilege of also meeting a young lady (aged 8) called Eden. Eden had told her mum and dad over a year ago that she wanted to grow her hair long just so she could get it then cut short and donate it to make a real hair wig for a little girl who has lost her hair during chemotherapy. That wasn’t all though. She wanted to raise money for us too. And she has excelled at that. More than £500 raised already. Eden came along with mum and dad and I heard how she got her nickname (surname Murray as was mine pre marriage so I know about the Murray Mints joke – never hurry a Murray, they’re too good to hurry! Anyway, Eden is known as MiniMint). She was so chuffed with her new hairdo – and pleased to meet me. I was truly honoured to meet her. Tristan – the General Manager of the Sheraton happened to appear at the moment I was showing her the function room all decorated, He too was impressed at her fundraising and took her on a tour behind the scenes. She reappeared with a passion fruit sorbet!
Well done MiniMint, I am very proud of you and what you have done to help other children who are going through a very tough time.
We are proud to call you our Supporter of the Month for November.
