In October, long-term supporters, Suzie Radford and her friend Angela Heggarty an amazing ball to raise funds First Touch.

Says Suzane:

" After almost a year of frantic planning, the First Touch Ball finally took place on a warm (ish) October evening at the Oaks Golf Club in Carshalton. Almost a hundred people attended and ate fabulous ate a fantastic dinner and danced their socks off!  Demand for raffle tickets was so high, we ran out in the first half hour! So as not to lose any potential customers, 3 little helpers frantically produced home made ones using the very modern tools of pen and paper! The auction items flew out of the building and I think its fair to say that a brilliant time was had by all."

Suzanne and Angela were overwhelmed by the generosity of their guests and the night raised over £4000, far exceeding their expectations. Such a good time was had that with many requests to do it again,  Angela and Suzanne took the following day off and then were straight backplanning for the First Touch Ball 2015.! Save the date.......17th October!
