Last Saturday the barns was filled with nostalgia, classic hits and some epic dance moves (!) as the first Soul Reunion of the year went off with a bang! This ever-popular event was in aid of our fundraising efforts as we (GG's Lynne & Mikaela) train for the mammoth 26.2 mile run around London at this years Virgin London Marathon!
Our Soul Reunion DJ, Richard Datson (who is also running in this years marathon) provided the tunes for the night making sure the dance-floor remained busy until the early hours :)
Working in the wedding and events industry, we are very fortunate and were able to collaborate alongside our trusted Granary Suppliers, friends of the GG's and some fantastic local businesses to put on a great prize draw on the evening. We'd like to thank the following businesses for their support and generous donations:
We would also like to say a HUGE thank you to Rocks & Frocks for very generously donating their stunning light up 'DANCE' letters for the evening and to Elizabeth Hall Event Design who provided the 'Selfie Corner' backdrop, endless amounts of fairy lights and our favourite Soul night sequin tablecloths! Another thank you must go to Sam at Cambridge Wedding Services who, as with every Soul Reunion, provided the DJ and lighting equipment which set the mood and party atmosphere! A BIG thanks to all of you who helped make the evening such a success!
I am thrilled to announce that the Soul Reunion raised a fantastic £1700! :)
Following Saturday nights antics, we, along with Richard and Hannah, were up and out the door by 9am to start a gruelling 13 mile run - not what you need on a few hours sleep! At least we tried to look happy... ;)
Our training has been going well and as were approach the 5 week countdown, both our training and fundraising are starting to set up a gear. Even though we raised a great total on Saturday, we still need to push on and collect more money for our three charities:
To make a donation to the GG's, please follow the links below :) Any donation, no matter how big or small, is much appreciated and will help many lives cope with illness or losing a loved one. During the longer training runs it can get hard and you do wonder why am I putting myself through this?! But when we remember WHY we're doing it and WHO for, it makes it all worthwhile. With every donation and message of support, we are spurred on and look forward to the challenge that awaits us on Sunday 23rd April! Bring it oooooon!
