One Winter's Night took place last Saturday night, and I'm very glad to report that it was a huge success.
We sold over 1,600 raffle tickets on the night, and the total amount that we'll be donating to our two charities will be confirmed in the next few days.
All money donated on this page, including via PayPal, will be added to our grand total, and will be divided evenly between our two charities: The Samaritans, and The Fountain Centre (a charity for cancer patients, their families and carers located in the St Luke’s cancer unit at the Royal Surrey County Hospital. The centre offers advice, counselling and a huge range of complementary therapies, in a calming and relaxed atmosphere, and they run entirely on donations.)
The inaugural One Winter’s Night concert, produced by GT Live Sessions, took place in January 2016. We are thrilled to be staging this, our fourth extraordinary evening of live music at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre. This year the stellar line-up included: Tom Copson, Nora Anna (with Will Looms), China Bears, Adam Giles Levy, Slack Maverick, Martin Harley, Telephone Road, Life Like Charlie (featuring Chaz Wallbank), and Zach Johnson.
The evening was hosted, as always, by local singer songwriter and promoter Gavin Thomas who also produced the event.
For each festival and concert we pick a department or an appeal at Guildford's Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to support, alongside a local or national charity. The total amount raised through our fundraising for that event is then split equally between the two causes.
We are thrilled that this evening is being sponsored by KP Snacks and thanks to their generosity, we will be able to donate 100% of all profits raised through ticket sales, and all donations to our two charities.
