Chairman's Charity Dinner a success
More than 100 people participated at the event, which was held at Towcester Racecourse, with music provided by talented local musician Lincoln Noel and his trio.
South Northamptonshire Council Chairman, Dermot Bambridge, who not only acted as host and but also as auctioneer, said: “I am delighted at the generosity of not only those who attend the evening but also others who sent gifts.
“As a result, my two nominated charities, St John Ambulance Brackley and Towcester Divisions, and the Northampton, Daventry and Towcester Branch of Parkinson’s UK, will benefit well.”
The highlight of the event was an auction, which in itself raised over £2,000 for good causes. Among the top lots were:
- a sponsored race at Towcester Racecourse with hospitality for two, donated by Towcester Racecourse;
- participation in the Silverstone Challenge, including driving super cars such as an Audi R8 and Ferrari 360, given by Silverstone Circuits Ltd; and
- a brand new Porsche for the weekend from the Porsche Centre Silverstone.
