I shall say this only once!
Theming your fundraising event adds a sense of excitement – we love this idea of turning your village hall into a French bistro in homage to the 80s hit TV series, 'Allo 'Allo!
‘On a chilly Saturday evening in October, ‘Rene’s Café’ opened its doors for business. Wickwar village hall had been beautifully transformed into a French café where guests and PTA members – dressed as characters from the hit TV show – sat down to enjoy a two-course candlelit dinner.
With a cosy, warm feel and a superb atmosphere, guests not only tucked into a fabulous meal but also enjoyed the delights of a well-stocked bar, a fantastic raffle (with prizes donated from local businesses) and a very successful auction where our top prize – an original painting (by Tom White) of The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies – fetched over £100!
Dancing continued well into the night, thanks to our brilliant DJ, and the added spontaneity of a local salsa teacher, who gave us a quick lesson in the art of salsa, helped keep the dance floor full. Even with many sore heads and many sore feet in the morning, the event was a tremendous success and we raised just over £850!’
