2015 Ceilidh Fun

On Saturday 14th March the Katherine Jacobs Trust had its biennial Ceilidh at Quorn Village Hall. Over 70 supporters of the Trust attended the event, which included barn dancing, a cold buffet and a prize raffle

The dancing began promptly 7:30pm and continued well into the evening. As in previous years, accomplished professional caller Charlie Corcoran did an superb job directing the dancing, jigging and swinging.

The action only stopped when the delicious cold buffet, prepared by Jenny, Sheena, Sarah and Julia, was served to the hungry room of revelers. The fare on offer included plenty of ham, homemade quiche, pasta salad and fresh bread. Pudding was supplied by expert baker, and long-time supporter of the Trust, Linda Marten. A beautiful selection of chocolate, coffee and vanilla cakes quickly disappeared before the dancing continued.

Once again Tony organised a raffle with an impressive collection of prizes: bottles of wine, cakes, easter eggs and even a £250 gardening voucher were won by supporters of the Trust. The raffle raised a total of £164. When tickets sales and additional donations are added to this figure, the total amount raised during the evening was well over £700.

The Trust wishes to thank Charlie, all of the volunteers, the Trustees and, of course, all of the people who supported the Trust by buying tickets and attending the event. The next event on the KJ Trust calendar will be a Pie Night at Beaumanor Hall on 11th September 2015. To book tickets please email info@kjtrust.com.
