The (almost) final count is in and the total stands at a whopping £981.37 - there's still a few bits and pieces yet to include, so it'll almost certainly reach the £1000 mark!

We had a wonderful day with wonderful people and wonderful music. Did I mention it was wonderful?

In no particular order...

Thank you to all the musicians who gave their time and talent, and provided us with fantastic music all day - Paul Corcoran, Andrew & Gavin Wilkinson, The Muswells, Roger Allen, Macie Hichlewood, David James Rumsey, Les Elvin, Just Instinct and Skinners Rats.

Thank you to Dave & Bee Freeman for organisational support and sorting the raffle out.

Thank you to Daryn and Steve Gilbert for helping out with the sound.

Thank you to Colin and Tracey and the others from the RNLI (Gillingham branch) for all their help and support running the stalls, counting the money, and for giving their time to the RNLI.

Thank you to Jasmine Reagon-Welch for her unstinting efforts in manning the barbecue all day.

An extra-special thank you to young Jack Constable who saved all his pennies and donated them - it came to a staggering (literally, if you had to carry it) £90!

Thank you to anybody else involved who I've forgotten to mention.

And lastly but by no means leastly, thank you to everybody who came along and supported us, it wouldn't happen without you. Here's looking forward to next year's event!
