Brough Community Primary School Fundraisers (BEST) raised just over £1,500 and kicked off the festive season with a fabulous evening at Brough Memorial Hall on Saturday 30 November.
The capacity audience were treated to a delicious two course supper provided by the award winning AUGILL CASTLE HOTEL followed by a Christmas themed murder mystery performance ‘Happily Never After’ performed by HIGHLY SUSPECT THEATRE COMPANY, over 80 people attended the sold out event that will enhance the opportunities for the pupils at the School.
Karen Thompson Chair of the Fundraisers said “It was amazing to see the hall full to the brim, having a great evening eating wonderful food and finding out who did it! We are now busy planning a range of exciting events for 2020 and look forward to a fabulous year helping support our school. We would also like to thank all our donors, supporters & volunteers and we do have to make a special thank you to Wendy Bennett and the team at Augill Castle without whom we couldn’t have made this evening such a success.”
Phil Cooper Head of BCPS added: “Our fundraising committee did an amazing job and my thanks go to them and all the audience who came and had a wonderful night of entertainment – I can’t wait for the next one!”
Wendy Bennett, Owner of Augill Castle commented: “Augill places itself at the heart of the community of the Upper Eden Valley and we love to support local causes, this evening was wonderful way for us to tell people about our fabulous new restaurant at the hotel whilst raising funds for our local school.”
