Well, the feedback has been unanimous; a truly fantastic evening enjoyed by all. A near sell-out attendance, the Rob George Foundation/Colchester & East Essex Cricket Club Ball did not disappoint – wonderfully MC’d by Michael J Fitch at his best, Jupiter Ray hitting all the right notes, and, to cap it all a truly outstanding Talbooth dinner!
The Ball wasn’t all about eating and dancing though, it was to raise funds for very special causes close to Rob’s heart. So, we are delighted to announce that through the generosity of those present, our sponsors, and some on-line bidders via Givergy we raised around £10k!
Pip George, Rob’s dad, and Chairman of the RGF said: “Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of the Ball. We never take anything for granted and never cease to be amazed by the generosity of our supporters who ensure we can continue the work of the RGF. Similarly, to also support Rob’s very own cricket club and cricket for the younger generation was the ‘icing on the cake’.”
In addition to supporting the RGF and Colchester & East Cricket Club, funds raised at the event will also be supporting North Essex Eagles Youth Participation Group.
