I am helping one of my little customer's raise money for The Evelina Children's Hospital which is part of St Thomas's, and our first fundraising event is on Thurs 5th December 6.30 pm at The Hill on Dartmouth Road.

Ticket prices are 5 for adults and 2.50 for kid's and are on sale now with all proceeds going to The Evelina. This includes entertainment, an auction with all items donated from local traders, so you'll probably get a bargain, and nibble's courtesy of The Hill, The Butchery and myself.

As much local support as possible would be greatly appreciated with this event as it will benefit quite a few local kid's, and you will get to have a laugh at the expence of some local shop keepers, staff and customers that will be dancing a Greese medley.

Ticket's are limited, but I also need to sell all to raise the maximum amount we can. If anyone want's to reserve any please PM me, or just pop in to buy them. Thank you

Must say I am in agony today after last night's rehearsal's. Greese Lightning is so fast and I'm getting a bit old for this sort of stuff, but It was fun!

Hi Michael
Yes I still have some ticket's left so I will leave one on the door at The Hill for you to pick up, and yes other's can come along and buy a ticket at The Hill from 6pm or from me tomorrow from 10am.
AND yes Michael I now have the keys to Santa's Grotto. Thank goodness I have the best shop landlord in FH, he almost jumped through hoop's yesterday to get me the key's for 7pm last night so that 4 lovely local resident's could dress the actual grotto part which look's amazing. Now it's on to the free workshop area!

Almost forgot to add to the auction item's there will also be

Energie Fitness Centre - 6 months membership
Stag and Bow - Workshop voucher

Aga's Little Deli and For Your Eye's Only will also be donating something for the auction.

Just had a phone call so another act is now added to tommorow's entertainment. We now have

Classical music played on the baby grand by a very talented 10 yr old.
Greese medley which I have previously mentioned.
Duo playing piano, guitar and singing. Just been added.
Singing by an original I Love FH boy that done gig's in The Hob and The Swiss Cottage when it was up and running a few year's ago, this is what I'm most excited about!

Hi All
I'd like to say thank you to everyone that came along last night and to all the local FH trader's that donated auction item's, and to The Hill for letting me use the main bar for this event. It was a great evening and the total raised for The Evelina Children's Hospital last night is 877.50.
