Successful Tsunami Fund Raising Event

A successful fund-raising event in aid of the recent Asian Tsunami was held at the Prince of Wales last Saturday, 22nd January.

With only two weeks to organize the event, Councillor Jay Hill and his fellow 'Glo-Worms,' a local fund raising group, put together a tremendous evening's entertainment which was extremely well attended.

The evening began with a performance by local band, ''The Zebras,' followed by an auction of various kindly donated lots, including a 'Jazzy Jay Disco Night,' a full day's gardening, 'Girl's Night In,' and 'Romantic Evening In' goodie boxes, meals at various venues and a keg of beer. Well done to auctioneer, Paul Truman for encouraging people to bid so well for these items.

A raffle was held later in the evening, followed by the premier performance of the recently formed rock band, 'The Dandy Lion Killers'.

'Gypsy Lulu Rose' told people's fortunes and the rest of the entertainment was provided by Jay Hill and his disco.

A sum of approximately £1500 was raised as a result of this event.

It is nice to see so many individuals and organizations in Ross-on-Wye raising money to help those who have suffered as a result of the recent natural disaster.

Thank you to Tina for taking the photographs and for having to endure drinking four pints of lager as I was unable to attend due to illness.
