Our functions have fast become one of the highlights of the social calendar for many of our supporters in the North West, 2015 was no different. With Anne-Marie, Catherine, Roisin and Grace at the helm organising the night we were all guaranteed a great night with lots of money being raised for The Good Life Orphanage.

GLO 2015 Function - Cinnamon Rooms

The Cinnamon Club in Bowden was the chosen venue this year again and as always the room was perfectly decorated for the night. A wonderful three course dinner was served to everyone whilst the very entertaining Richard Sanderson kept the whole place captivated during the meal with his excellent fiddle playing. With an array of raffle prizes on display people were only too glad to buy the tickets and Anne-Marie’s well tested system for the raffle worked like a dream. All the raffle prizes were donated by very generous supporters and lots of people were very happy after discovering they had won anything from Jo Malone Candles to custom made jewellery from Kenya.

Following a very moving audio visual display by Roisin and an update on the progress of The GLO & SBM School from Mary it was time for the auction which is always one of the highlights of the night, again every prize was donated ranging from a Manchester Untied Signed Shirt from the Manchester United Foundation to four V.I.P. tickets to see Simply Red donated by Eamon & Anne-Marie O’Malley. Thanks to Greg McNally our DJ & Compere for the night, the bidding got underway and soon we realised that this part of the night was going to raise a lot of much needed funds for the orphanage. The ten auction prizes raised over £9,000 which was amazing.

The Modern Way Rock & Pop Band soon appeared on stage following the auction, these lads from Brighton know how to rock the joint and soon everyone was up dancing. A wonderful night was had by one and all, there were a few sore heads and sore feet the next morning but it was for a good cause and as always 100% of the money raised on the night will go directly to the project, no administration, travel or associated costs are deducted.

Last but by no means least a MASSIVE Asante Sana to Anne-Marie, Catherine, Roisin & Grace, without your organising skills & dedication to our charity we would have an impossible mountain to climb!
