Lyndsey and I would like to pay tribute to every business, company or organisation that assisted with some fantastic prizes which were donated for the evening. Without these kind donations the evening could not have generated so much money which will go towards saving the lives of other babies and children.

We would like to thank Sam, Amy and everyone at the Casa Hotel for hosting a fanstastic event and for catering for us in every way possible. Thank you.
