What a fabulous night! Thank you so much to everyone who attended, we raised and amazing £5,343.67!

The final episode of the Water Ski challenge video was played to a hushed audience; it gave everyone an insight into the training and dedication it took from the team of: Lucy Bristow, Phil Sullivan, Tony Edwards and David Froud to enable them to successfully complete the challenge.

The group of boat crew and their wives from Team Pulsar Racing, made the journey from Cork to join the revelry, as did 5 of the Volunteers from the Glen of Imaal Mountain Rescue, who are based just South of Dublin – thank you so much for coming over to support us! We also had guests from all over the UK as well as the wonderful local people who support the Foundation in everything we do so a huge thanks to you too.

We finished the evening with music and dancing with Dave Dean, a talented swing singer and DJ extraordinaire! The last of the party goers retired to bed just before 5am.

We have had three marvellous Balls now, in aid of the Charlie Froud Foundation and they have all been very special but it seems to be the consensus that this was the best so far!

So watch out next year, we’ll be back…
