Thousands raised at army fundraising dinner On 15 October, Family Fund’s guests arrived to a champagne reception and the Regimental Piper from the Ghurkhas, for our first fundraising dinner held at Imphal Barracks York. Guests were treated to a fantastic five course dinner, followed by an auction with one lucky guest winning a day with the Royal Marine Helicopter Assault Unit based at Royal Navy Air station Yeovilton. “I have been to many corporate events but none like this it is fantastic.” After dinner drinks were hosted by the Officers from 2 Signal Regiment in the Mess bar. Our thanks go to the Regiment for their hospitality. Comments from guests following the event included “can’t wait for next year” “can I book a table now” “what an absolutely incredible event.” The event raised £4,000 for Family Fund to further help families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people. We hope to hold another fundraising dinner there again next year. If you would like to get involved in corporate fundraising for Family Fund, please get in touch.
