“A Bit of a Do” in aid of The Yorkshire Cancer Centre

A Bit of a Do!

October 2008 – Yorkshire Cancer Centre (reg Charity 1075308)

The first annual ‘bit of a do’ took place at Glusburn institute on Friday 10th October and was a resounding success. The evening began with the excellent local band Kelly’s Eye followed by an auction and raffle of donated prizes, such was the generosity of the donators and the bidders that we were able to raise a whopping £4500.

Special thanks must go to:

  • Glusburn Institute for donating the hall
  • All individuals and businesses who donated prizes
  • The Auctioneer, Matthew Binns, who stepped in at the last moment and did a fantastic job
  • The ‘A bit of a do!’ committee who freely gave up their time and energies for this worthy cause
  • Everyone who came and supported the event, especially the volunteer bar staff
  • The Wonder Women who ran the Tesco 10k at Castle Howard for Cancer Research UK and raised several thousand for the cause.

Following the success of ‘A bit of a do!!’ we are already talking about doing it again next year, so keep a space in your diary for ‘A bit of a do 2!!’
