What an amazing Bonfire event last night

What an amazing Bonfire event last night. We have a lot of people to thank for a superb fireworks display and entertainment. John and his team from Crowndale Foods put on a spectacular fireworks display. The fair ground attractions and people were so kind and gave us a huge monkey to raffle as well as donating to the Charity. John Greaves gave his land, his time, his food, his staff and everything else any one needed. The staff at D&G Catering and Caterfest donated their wages back to the Charity and served the public all evening with delicious food. This was a fantastic event instigated by our Gez. As you will know Gez has supported the Charity for 3 years now and works tirelessly with his friends, family and supporters throughout the year to fundraise for Wishes 4 Kids. Last nights event raised a whopping £5125.00!!!! That takes his total for this year to £30,244.91. THE GRAND TOTAL for the 3 years now stands at £80,889.76. The fundraising events that Gez organises have included on line auctions, bonus balls, guess the song – too many things to mention. We are so very grateful to Gez for bringing together the communities of Saffron Lane, Eyres Monsell, Wigston, Aylestone and Knighton and creating a huge family of fundraisers all helping Wishes 4 Kids. This phenomenal amount of funds has helped to grant so many wishes for the poorly children of Leicestershire and beyond and on behalf of them all, THANK YOU. Gez and his family and friends really have taken the Charity to their heart and we are so very proud to of been chosen to be supported by them.[fb_vid id=”1697438863634131″]
