Fundraising Lunch

The EABF held its first fundraising lunch on Tuesday 10th June 2016, at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington and raised a staggering £33,500 for Brinsworth House.


The EABF would like to thank all the acts that contributed to the afternoon:

Kings and Queens (semi-finalists of Britain's Got Talent 2016)
Phil Phillips Trio
Mike Ramsden (Toastmaster)
Sebastian Walton (The Magic Circle's 'Young Magician of the Year 2016)
Joe Pasquale
Robert Powell
Mike Read
Hayley Sanderson
Vicki Michelle MBE
Rick Wakeman

The EABF would also like to thank the dozens of people who contributed items for our raffle, sealed bid auction conducted by BL Surveyors London and live auction. We raised such an amazing amount of money! Thank you so much!

The afternoon not only turned into an absolutely terrific fundraising lunch in aid of Brinsworth House, but was also the most wonderful and enjoyable afternoon, to be remembered for many, many years to come!
