On a perfect summer’s evening over 200 Longacre staff and parents attended the legendary Summer Ball! The sun shone and the champagne flowed courtesy of the Grantley Group before a delicious three course meal.

The theme this year was 1920s and there were many beautiful dresses and smart men in their tuxes. The diamond raffle proved a huge hit, with many of the ladies keen to purchase one of the giant flashing rings!

Music was provided by Barcoda and the dance floor was full from start to finish! Other entertainment included a casino and a diamond shaped vodka luge. We listened to your feedback and shortened the live auction this year with a larger silent auction. This was a great success and meant there was more time for dancing!

Thank you to all of our donors for the amazing prizes donated to the auctions and raffle. Without you and our generous bidders we would not be able to raise so much money for school and our chosen charity. As a result we have raised in the region of £18,500 and will be donating 10% to Phyllis Tuckwell hospice care.

Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the Ball, bid on the auctions and bought raffle tickets.
