The Martin Fisher Foundation Fundraiser on 25th July 2019 was a great success. With a special top-up donation of £1000 from Glencairn Consulting Ltd., we managed to raise a total of £2338.99 for charity.

This money will go towards The Martin Fisher Foundation’s aims to raise HIV awareness, increase access to HIV testing, and reduce HIV stigma.

Huge thanks to all the wonderful businesses who donated raffle prizes. The raffle alone raised £1080 in ticket sales – thanks to such an incredible mix of prizes and over forty in total. Such amazing generosity from the local community for which we are so very grateful.

Despite the insane heat, all of the performers gave it their very best and it was a really fun and entertaining evening. Hosted by the incredible Stella Pint (Ali-H Comedy), we had performances from Qukulele, Mark Oh, Laura Darrall, Jen Ives, Honk Improv, Aiden Bex, and Harlequeens.

Four individuals performed on the ‘open mic’ and each was brilliant in their own right. Such different styles and each so beautifully written and performed. Huge thanks to Amber Dewstow, Nick Lane, Emma Clowsley, and Hazel Rogers.

Two incredibly talented photographers covered the event. These were Carley Dale Photography and Richard Gunn Photography. The pictures are amazing… all 375 of them!
