CHARITY HALLOWEEN DINNER
Fri 31st Oct 2014
Held at Weston Park Golf Club, this event is fundraising for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) in memory of a Norfolk baby girl, Beatrice Smith, who sadly passed away on February 24th aged just 12 weeks old. She had been diagnosed with Restrictive Cardiomyopathy - a very rare disease - just six weeks earlier. The staff at Great Ormond Street Hospital cared for her and ensured her last moments were pain-free and peaceful.

Beatrice’s family are devastated and heartbroken, of course, but want their little girl’s memory to live on through a positive legacy. The Beatrice Octavia Iris Smith Brighter Future Fund has been set up to raise much needed funds for a specialist heart and lung bypass machine at Great Ormond Street Hospital, to give other children like Beatrice a chance.

Event tickets are on sale at the website below, priced at £35.00 which includes arrival drink, canapés, three-course dinner and coffee, entertainment, raffle ticket (some amazing prizes have already been donated) and a charitable donation. There will also be an auction on the night.

Fancy dress is optional!
