Last month Clare Smith, a consultant from The Body Shop at Home organised a fantastic Bollywood event to raise money for our projects. Clare not only raises money through her parties and events, but also came with us to Moldova in the summer to volunteer at our Child and Community Centre.
At the evening guests were treated to a performance from Authentic Bollywood Dancers who did two sets of dancing then got the audience to join in. Clare said “This bit was really fun and I was up there trying all the moves!! Very energetic though! I thought I would collapse after 20mins!!”.
There was also a raffle at the start in which everyone got a prize. Included in ticket prices was either a bottle of Cobra Indian beer for men or a glass of champagne for ladies! Later on in the evening guests were treated to chicken curry, rice, samosas and bags of Indian sweets.
Nearly everyone made the effort to get dressed up and dancing went on until 1.00 am in the morning. The event raised a phenomenal £702 which (keeping on theme!) is enough to pay for 90 refugee children from Burma, living in India to go to school for a month and ensure they have food and medical care.
Huge thanks to all involved. If you have any creative fundraising plans get in touch!
