Talking about the event, committee member Sarah Walters said: “This is a amazing local charity that helps life-threatened children and their families in our area. The organising committee decided to raise money for EACH at this years’ event. This is something we have been doing for a few years now and the crowds that came on Saturday show us that it’s still a wonderfully popular event”.

Nikki Brown, Suffolk Fundraiser for EACH said: “We are incredibly grateful to the organising committee for choosing EACH to benefit from this wonderful event. I was there on the evening and have to say it was well run, hugely entertaining and massively popular. I hope that we will be able to work together again in the future. What an amazing achievement for them to have raised so much. We are so lucky to have such dedicated fundraisers who recognise the need for EACH to support local life threatened Children and their families”.
