ACEs were delighted to be invited to support St Peter’s Hospice with a wondrous fundraiser at the beautiful Badminton School. Compered by the sensational Joanna Lumley, the event aimed to raise money for their Room to Care appeal, providing individual rooms for their hospice residents.
After a champagne reception in the blooming gardens guests were called for dinner. A silent auction appealed to guests’ competitive edge whilst an after dinner live auction ensured the tent was filled with noise and excitement as guests fought from some incredible prizes and experiences.
Filled with incredible food provided by Fosters, guests were able to enjoy a night packed with emotional content, inspiring stories and some surprise entertainment from Bristol Old Vic Theatre. Whilst the evening had a clear and important cause, the atmosphere in the marquee was positive, joyful and overwhelmingly inspired. With the help of Joanna’s exquisite story telling and humour, St Peters raised a staggering £107,500 for the appeal.
