The eighth Not the New Year’s Eve fundraising ball took place at Worthing Golf Club in aid of Guild Care’s Building a Home to Remember appeal. Over 126 guests helped to raise around £5,000 for the charity’s dementia wellbeing centre and care home.

The event was oversubscribed, with tables being booked by both local companies and private individuals. There was a Scottish theme for the evening which included a live performance from a Rod Stewart tribute act, followed by a fun casino and dancing. After the dinner guests were invited to bid for various prizes that included tickets to see Robbie Williams. Other auction items were donated by the Beckhams, Lord Sugar, Sir Peter Bottomley MP and Rebecca Adlington.

The organisers, local businessmen Peter Kennard and Derek Steel, are dedicated supporters of the Worthing charity. They were extremely pleased with the event and Peter said that “everyone really enjoyed themselves and once again we would like to thank everyone who kindly donated prizes, as well as the generous guests who bid for them.”

Suzanne Millard, Chief Executive said “We really appreciate the time and effort that Peter and Derek put in to arrange events of this scale and thank everyone for supporting our Building a Home to Remember appeal for a new dementia wellbeing centre and home at Durrington, near Worthing.”

Approximately £5,500 was raised for Guild Care on the evening.
