Paul and Donna  – fundraiser party

On 15 March 1986 Halleys Comet was to be seen overhead, Diana Ross,singing Chain Reaction was the UK no 1 and Paul & Donna got hitched.  What is the best way to celebrate but by holding a big party and invite family and friends to celebrate the event.  Family from Scotland , London & Kent joined our good friends for a wonderful party on Saturday March 19th at our local hall.  The happy couple lead the evening by dancing again to Jennifer Rush’s ‘Power of Love’ and was joined by the Best man and Chief Bridesmaid on the dance floor.  Of course, the big change was our three boys who celebrated with us and we decided that we did not want any presents, so all those that were invited were asked to donate to PSF UK .  So Ross’ godparents, Geoffrey and Andrea took on checking the money and chasing after those guests who were able, to complete a Gift Aid form.  The net result was a marvellous £1,060 raised on the night and with Gift Aid, the final total to be over £1,200.

We were so pleased to do this for PSF UK, as the charity has been such a support to Ross and us over the years….and we all had a great time dancing the night away…..now for the next 25 years!!!
