The food is critical to that and you surpassed yourselves as the menu was divine. It is such an important occasion for us seeing the majority of our supporters come together to hear about our work and have a great night of fundraising, so please pass on our thanks to David, the chefs and the waiting staff for all of their hard work in making it happen.
