The evening started with drinks in the gallery accompanied by the beautiful sounds of the string quartet, Aurora Strings. Guests then made their way to The Biscuit Room where they were welcomed by compère Alfie Joey and Managing Partner, Paul Monaghan. They watched an emotional video about Heel and Toe to remind everyone of the real reason behind the event.
In between courses of a delicious three course dinner, guests were entertained by close up magician Glenn Ward and placed their bids for the Silent Auction. Lee Ridley, aka Lost Voice Guy, was the headline act of the evening and amused the audience with some of his hilarious material. Premier North East band, Last Anthem, ended the night with several crowd-pleasing tunes and got everyone out of their chairs!
From all of the team at St James’ Square, thank you so much to the corporate sponsors, the silent auction donors and all of the wonderful guests that supported the event – it was a huge success!
