Cheese and Wine Evening Report

Celebrity Cheese & Wine Evening Raises Thousands for
Sunbeams Music Trust!

Thank you to everyone who attended the Sunbeams Cheese & Wine Evening and Charity Auction last Friday at Rheged.

The auction raised an amazing £8000, and with additional donations and ticket sales, a fantastic £15,000 was raised for Sunbeams.

Special thanks go to Rory Stewart MP who did an absolutely fantastic job as our auctioneer and to guest speaker Johnny Ball, whose inimitable intellect and wit on maths, science and music is beyond compare.

Thanks also go to everyone who donated items for the auction, all the local producers who kept us going through the night with amazing cheeses, chutneys, bread, butter and wine, and of course to everyone who bought auction lots or made a donation to the Trust.

Keep your eyes peeled for a write up in the Cumberland and Westmorland Herald and photos in next months issue of Cumbria Life magazine.

In the meantime, here are a few pictures to give you a 'flavour' of the night...
