Frome-based cancer counselling charity We Hear You (WHY) has received a donation of £1686 from supporter Christopher Scott-Moody following a charity luncheon at Lowden Garden Centre in Shaw, hosted by Classic FM host Anne-Marie Minhall.
The event, which took place on Saturday 18th August, saw over 100 guests enjoy live classical music from Welsh string quartet Cambria, a drinks reception and buffet lunch, an art sale, a raffle and a charity auction. Ruth Knagg, Bid Writer at We Hear You, says:
‘We had such a great day at Lowden – it’s a beautiful setting and the food was fantastic. Huge thanks to Christopher for organising the event and to Anne-Marie Minhall, who was an amazing host and sparked a fierce bidding war in the auction to win a personal tour of the Global Radio HQ in London with homemade cake! Thanks also to John and Alison Sinclair for letting us use their lovely venue and to everyone who donated auction and raffle prizes and came along on the day. The total raised was £1686, which will pay for more than 38 counselling sessions for people affected or bereaved by a life threatening condition. Events like these are so important to a small charity like WHY, both in terms of fundraising and also for raising awareness of the service we offer.’
