This was the second time I had had the honour of being the Toastmaster and Auctioneer at this summer event. Set in the beautiful Cheshire countryside, Cransley School held their Summer Ball in aid of the PTA. With the theme of Alice in Wonderland the school and marquee were decked out accordingly and I played the part of the Mad Hatter, ensuring everything went to time and compered the evening and auction after the meal.
The leavers looked elegant in their ball gowns and the parents, guardians and friends were all suitably attired for the evening bringing a great contrast in colours and designs. The weather was kind and the whole evening was a roaring success with over £5000 pounds raised on the night. The Chair of the PTA said “A huge thank you from the PTA and School for your services at our Summer Ball. The success of the evening was in no small part due to your quiet efficiency and cheerful manner. A good time was had by all and due to your very hard work with the auction we managed to raise a very healthy sum for school funds.”
The date is already in the diary for next year!!
