The staff and Trustees of Fairoak Housing Association were delighted to welcome 100 of South Lakeland’s business people at a fundraising wine and cheese tasting event at the Castle Green Hotel on Friday 10th November.
All of the tickets were sold in advance and everyone arrived eager to enjoy the selection of lovely red and white wines, along with plates of delicious artisan cheese.
There was also a ‘silent auction’ where many of the businesses attending had donated great prizes that guests could bid for. The whole evening was a great success and we raised an incredible £3,191.87!
“It was a really wonderful evening, enjoyed by everyone who attended.” says Kate Forshaw, housing officer at Fairoak. “The generosity of the people attended and those who donated such lovely items for the auction was beyond our wildest expectations – we can’t thank them enough.”
Plans are already being made for another event next year, with a gin tasting evening being suggested.
