Our first SJB Fundraiser was a huge success! Canton Rugby Club were our generous hosts and a fine time was had by all. A brain-boggling quiz, a delicious curry and wonderful entertainment all made for a brilliant night and we all enjoyed the first ever public performance of our title song from the show!
We followed this with a sunny seaside fundraiser in beautiful Tenby, which was jam-packed with supporters who enjoyed an entertaining quiz and wonderful live music. Delicious John Barrowman cupcakes baked by our very own leading man Simon Bulley were very well received indeed! A huge thanks to all at Canton Rugby Club and at Caffe Vista in Tenby for supporting us and for helping each night go with a bang!
