Captain's Club in Christchurch in the snow

Tonight’s performance at The Captain’s Club

The audience for the 18th night of the Advent Calendar was given a warm welcome at The Captains Club and wonderfully entertained by the assembled saxophones lead by Sarah Bolter as a suitably lounge friendly evening.

A cheque for £500 was presented to Peter Holway of NCI (National Coastguard Institution) Hengistbury Head by Kelvin Medley-Jones, the sponsor for the evening to go with the money collected by donations and tickets sold for the raffle at the end of the evening.

Our thanks again to Sarah and The Captains Club for another amazing evening and looking forward to tomorrow’s performance now changed to The George Inn in the centre of Christchurch.
