Hosting an amazing Festive Bollywood Event.
The party atmosphere, coupled with the unparalleled kindness of people wanting to give was humbling. The event was a huge success with donations coming in 2 weeks after the event, so many people had a wonderful and an amazing time. It was what we all needed after a lonely lockdown and not seeing people for such a long time.
The amount raised was nearly £6,000 which will make a huge difference to our charity and will help support the biggest, to date, ‘Health and Wellness Show’ on 10th April 2022!
