A Night to Remember held at Victoria Hall in Oakham on Saturday certainly lived up to its name. More than 150 people attended the charity party night to remember loved ones affected by cancer and raise money for three charities Loros, Coping with Cancer and Hope against Cancer.
The main organisers of the event Alison Crowden, Nikki Loomes and Helen Bird were delighted with the response they received. Nikki Loomes said: “We have been overwhelmed by the support offered to us from local businesses and individuals who have selflessly pledged their time, money and gifts to create a profitable and entertaining night.
“As a result we are very pleased that we raised over £7,000 on the night.”
The party started with photos and a sparkling drinks reception followed by a magician, entertainment from a jazz pianist and a cheese and wine supper with food. There was also an amazing auction and a raffle followed by music and dancing.
