Money Raised for Macmillan Cancer Care

A fun and successful evening was had at The Workshop Gallery on Friday where we raised £500 for Macmillan Cancer Care through our raffle and donations via the JustGiving page we set up for the event.

Many thanks to Kenny and Ian for letting us use the venue; to all the generous local businesses who added in an array of items to the draw over an above the photographic prints and photo shoot offered by The Collective; and not forgetting Kim's wife and daughter who made the most mouthwatering chocolate brownies for the occasion.

Below are a couple of snaps from the evening, but Pauline from Macmillan Cancer Care has said she'll be getting hold of one of those large cardboard cheques for a proper press release photo fairly soon.
