We raised over £5,000 for The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice!
This year saw Howarths second Music Extravaganza at the John Smith Stadium Huddersfield and starring our very own Peter Howarth of the Hollies, the Paul Dobie Band, Magician comedian Darren Mac and, the smoothest of all crooners Tony Benedict. This year we were delighted that the event was sponsored by RRG Toyota Huddersfield who, I think I can safely say, had a fantastic evening; although I do question Clive and his guests vocal ability following their impromptu appearance on stage with their unique rendition of Cold Play’s When I Ruled the World. Don’t give up the day job Clive but a massive thanks to you and your lovely team at RRG Toyota for your support throughout the entire year and for putting so much energy into the evening itself.
The Extravaganza raised over £5,000 for the Forget Men Not Children’s Hospice and on the night our fabulous guests donated a cracking £2,300 either voluntary or through the Casino!
I was going to wax lyrical about the event but have decided to let those attending on the night speak for me by way of feedback;
“Superb event, well organised, well managed, well executed. Excellent value for money!”
“Really great night, nice variety of things going on, music, video’s speeches. Food was lovely, Paul Dobie and his band were fantastic”
“good mixture of older and modern songs, wouldn’t change a thing”
“Peter Howarth 10/10 effortless singing and really got the party started”
“Paul Dobiie Band, these guys were amazing…”
“Paul Dobie Band, mad as a hatter and great fun and got everybody up…”
“It’s all been said, see you next year”
This is just some of the feedback with not one adverse or negative comment to report and I can’t tell you how delighted I am personally to see what started out as a pretty dubious idea come to life in such a productive and enjoyable way.
Tables are booking up already for next year so if you want to get in on this amazing evening of music, dance, comedy, magic and pure fun please ring Justine, our office manager on 01274 864999 to reserve a table or individual tickets.
Thanks for all of you who so generously supported us.
Andy Howarth, Chairman of Howarths
