Following on from the efforts of last year’s President, Ben Lawson, with the charity bike ride and with the help of DJL with the raffle at the Dinner a fantastic £1800 was raised for Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre.
Below is Bill Tomlinson, from the charity, accepting the cheque from Ben at the AGM
Well done to everyone involved and thank you for your generosity – more details on this amazing local charity can be found at www.dchc.org.uk
I have had enquiries about both the speaker and the band at the Dinner so I thought that I would pass on their details
The band were the Burgundy’s – a local band – based near Nottingham. “With over 7 years experience of playing together, The Burgundys are a close knit group of experienced and talented musicians who come together to create an incredible sound and fun atmosphere for your special occasion.” More information available at www.theburgundys.co.uk
