From our Friends –
The Friends of Shoalstone Pool fashion show was a great success, raising over £1600. This is the biggest amount we have ever raised in a single event. The Friends would particularly like to thank the many people who helped make it such a success – the models, hairdressers, makeup, compare, DJ, and “Missin Tackle” who sang for us. And the stall holders who exhibited their wares for people to see in the interval.
The raffle was a great success with 13 prizes worth up to £100. Those who won were highly delighted. Our thanks for these prizes goes to the proprietor of the Regatta Shop in Fore Street whose clothes was also modelled; and Bertie and Crew situated on the Marina.
The Friends biggest thanks goes to Nicola from Bertie and Crew who organised the whole event with her band of helpers. A lot of time and hard work goes into organising these fund raising events and this is where Brixham scores with people coming together as a community to give their time which in turn benefits the town e.g. Shoalstone Pool. We are most fortunate now to have Nicola on our small committee – so look out for other fund raising events (Christmas beetle drive at the rugby club!). Finally we mustn’t forget the Berry Head Hotel who let us use the Mulberry Room free of charge and all those all bought tickets and supported us. Thank you one and all.
