CRUK 2013 night in Hornchurch

Friday night, and the lights are low
Looking out for the place to go
Where they play the right music, getting in the swing

On Saturday the 21st September in Hornchurch, the right place to go was Club 2004 which hosted the annual Cancer Research UK Charity Event arranged by Jenni Winfield and Mark McIlven. I was fortunate enough to have been invited to come along and take some pictures from the evening.

And what an evening it was! There was everything you could possibly want from a charity do – music till the early hours courtesy of DJs Hills and Toes, a magician doing amazing tricks (I still want to know how he hid all those bottles of booze inside a single bottle-sized container!), a 12 year old Michael Jackson impersonator, a raffle with great gifts donated by local businesses, an auction, line dancing and plenty of entertainment provided by the audience on the dance floor. Even Elvis showed up to give us a few tunes!

As well as being great fun, there was also a serious side to the evening, namely cancer. Everybody was having a jolly good time, while at the same time contributing money to a good cause. At the end of the evening Jenni and Mark revealed a large cheque of over £2,000 raised during the evening. That’s a lot of money, and a great contribution Cancer Research’s invaluable work.

Well done to everybody who contributed their time and energy to the event!
