Summer Ball Update

28 March 2014

As you know we are having a Summer Ball on July 12th for two great charities, Mothers of Africa and The UK Sepsis Trust (Welsh Chapter), please contact Maria Anaesthetics Department for tickets gundyma@cf.ac.uk or 02920 743110.

Well we have had some great donations, the first is news of the band for the evening, the Chapter Four Jazz and Swing Group are giving us their services for free and playing some fab dance music for us for the evening.  Glen Manby from the group tells me you can find a brief example of the vocal swing group, and a longer piece by the jazz group (2 different repertoires), by clicking on the “MUSIC” header at the top of the page on his website  glenmanby.com and going down to the the lower half of that webpage; there is also some info about the bands with the audio samples and a photo gallery as well this week.

In addition, we have had a fantastic donation for auction from one of our Mothers of Africa volunteers, Sue Hunt www.suehunt.co.uk a professional artist with Cardiff School of Art and Design.  Sue has donated the beautiful picture you see below, gallery price would be £1500, reserve price for the Summer Ball is £650.  We have already a bid of £650, so if you want it, please bid higher by letting me know.  So the Ball is off to a good start,  we need £10,000 to build a new solar classroom in Chongwe.  Please be generous, please get involved.
