It was truly an event to remember, just a shame that the current financial climate has dampened the effect on good charities such as this.

Nancy you rock hun! first time i've seen you and its plain to see that you enjoy what you do, pity you couldnt have stayed on all night (and your sis too) looking forward to Towerfest.

Middi and Brad were very 'entertaining' and made breakfast a whole lot brighter (hope the finger was ok Mark!)

Rosie sung the adopted song magnificently and no doubt there wasnt a dry eye in the room (i know mine werent)

Well done to yodelling Nigel and all the girls for organising a great event and well done to the gang from York who must be robots in disguise to have danced as long and as active as they did.
There aint no rehearsal on the stage of life!

Great music, great dancing, great company!

Many thanks every one you were all brilliant and it will take around a month to get the final total when everyone collects there sponsor money in but we think it will be in excess of £6500. You will remember Chrissy Byrnethe scouse lady who use to be in Blue Orchid who came long and entertained here. She sent me two emails today one telling me how fantasic everyone was by trying to raise money to defie this terrible desiese. The other one breaks my heart and makes me more and more determined to continue to support this Trust. Saddly one of her family little Thomas today at the age of 10 lost his fight against cancer and died.
God bless you Chrissy and all of you at this time.
