95 gents gathered for a gentlemen’s dinner at Shooters Hill Golf Club on Eaglesfield Road on Friday, 15th February to raise funds for the Freddie Farmer Foundation.
The event included a fundraising auction and a raffle with the items on offer donated by friends, family and club members.
Freddie Farmer’s granddad, Danny Catchesides, who is one of the driving forces behind the foundation's campaign to raise £250,000, said: “It was a sell-out, and the hospitality was, as always, top notch.”
“Aubergine Catering’s Donna Sustins and her staff did us proud.
“We raised £6,000, which is fantastic.”
The next fundraising event will be a boxing evening at the TA Centre on Baring Road, Grove Park on Friday, 1st March.
