At the end of January FACE supporters turned thespians for a night.
They took over the Medway Little Theatre for a special performance of Vincent in Brixton, a play about Van Gogh’s time staying as a paying guest in a London home.
The award winning play depicted his relationship with the landlady and gave an insight to his early years, when he was working for an agency dealing in art.
With ticket sales and raffle more than £700 was raised.
On the last Friday before Christmas Rochester High Street is awash with drinkers and we added our bit to the mix.
Thanks to the generosity of the owners of the George Vaults bar we were allowed to have two lovely young ladies selling shots.
Jaeger Bombs (Red Bull and Jaegermeister) and Skittle Bombs (Red Bull and Vodka) were the poison of choice, which clearly went down a treat with the festive revellers as they downed more than 100 of them.
With a bar to bar bucket collection in the nearby pubs, which among the High St drunks is a great way to be abused, the total from the night came to more than £450.
Laughing All The Way To The Bank
The FACE Comedy Night on March 7th at the Roffen club was great fun…and a great fundraiser.
The five comics were a top class line up, particularly with the Perrier Award winning Dominic Holland, who has a string of TV and radio show credits to his name.
A sell-out audience raised a total of more than £1200 between the ticket sales, raffle and even an auction by compere Jeremy O’Donnell of the chocolates he won in the raffle.
