In Sues Name Tea Party

On the 29th September Maria Elias organised an amazing Tea Party with an amazing range of cakes and sandwiches all donated by various businesses and friends of Maria, who she had contacted with the help of Antoinette, Zoe and Loredana who comprised the Committee, who had spent 2 months organising this event. Maria’s family and friends turned out in numbers to help Maria on the day helping to serve drinks and food.

Antoinette did Healing sessions and another lady did readings and there were a number of stalls including entertainment for the children. The total amount raised was £2160, which was largely due to a successful Partylite Candle Pool draw that Maria worked hard to promote in the 2 months preceding the event. Our friends from Barclays Bank who attended assisted on the day and we are hoping to receive £2000 in matched funding, bringing the teal to £4160, well done to Maria and her team an extraordinary successful event.

We also won the Award for Best Charity in the Local Sophia’s Diary Awards Ceremony

In Sue’s Name Annual Golf Day 2018 raises over £11,000

On Friday 21 September 2018, In Sue’s Name held our fifth annual charity golf day and dinner event at the Enfield Golf Club. The event was a great success, raising £11,134 for the charity.

55 golfers took part in 14 teams on a day when the weather was not at its most cooperative with occasional rain and unpredictable winds. With that said, In Sue’s Name supporters are a hardy bunch and all the golfers got away in good time, but many won’t be submitting their scores for any PGA awards this year!

In the evening the golfers were joined by friends and family and our Chairmen flew in directly from Portugal to attend the event. Many of our regular participants were in attendance, including David Burrowes, former MP for Enfield Southgate. In addition we welcomed a number of new faces and we were particularly pleased to see attendance from members of the BNI Business Network where our founder and director, David Taylor is an active member.

Many thanks to our sponsors for their continued support of this event. LMC contractors acted as the main event sponsor for the third year in a row. Many thanks also to all those who gave their time and provided raffle prizes and auction lots. Thanks also to DJ, Marcus Anthony who provided the entertainment for free.

Finally, many congratulations to our winners. We hope to see you all again at the golf event in 2019 and in attendance at some of the other great events we have lined up.

Charity Golf Classic and Gala Dinner

Following previous years’ successes, we are delighted to be able to invite you to join us on Friday 16th September 2016 for another great day and evening. Come along to Enfield Golf Club and enjoy a round of 18 holes of golf with your friends, family, clients, neighbours or any other golfers you would like to bring along. You are welcome to pull together a 4 ball team, pairs or even single players, we will then put together the teams for the day.

After a good walk around the course and a refreshing drink at the bar we will then have our Gala Dinner and Presentation Evening. Here we will be pleased to welcome our non-golfers to join us in a great evening of food, music, dancing and fun! Last year’s guests seemed to enjoy themselves dancing into the early hours too! On the night we will also be presenting the awards to the winners from the day’s competitions, as well as having a raffle and auction with some amazing prizes on offer!

So why are we doing all this?
Besides enjoying the day, you will be helping us fundraise money to “Fight the causes of Brain Cancer” in memory of our wonderful daughter and special lady, Sue Blasotta. She was sadly diagnosed with lesions on the brain in November 2010, and died just 6 weeks later. We have therefore set up the charity “In Sue’s Name”, with the sole aim of raising vital funds to fight this terrible disease, the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the UK of patients under the age of 45!

We hope you can make it and look forward to receiving your application to join us on the day. Please do share this Charity Event with your friends and family by email (click here to forward to a friend) and also via our Facebook Event page. If you have any questions please do call me personally on 07940 877486 or email me at avidt@yahoo.co.uk.

Thank you and God Bless
