Successful Fundraising Evening
North London LETS many members and non-member guests enjoyed a fabulous evening gala of live music, mouth-watering food, foot-tapping songs and music, and lively cabaret entertainment.
All swathed in the warm and happy atmosphere of a sharing and giving local community spirit from start to finish.
The live music, songs, poetry and cabaret performances thrilled, touched and amused the audience over and over throughout the evening.
Faces smiled animatedly and contentedly. New friends and contacts were made as members and non-members mingled around cosy candlelit and flower decorated tables in the audience, and met in the cafe, remarking enthusiastically on the wonderful array of culinary delights available on the large buffet.
A rapturous audience was drawn to join in with each classic song or ballad wonderfully delivered by Rick and Amy, singing along and swaying as the positive vibe quickly spread and grew.
Exclamations of delight and spontaneous clapping repeatedly punctuated the warm friendly atmosphere, breaking out into waves of laughter at innovative artistic delights including clever and witty turns of phrase in charmingly observed poetry by North London LETS member Wendy, and an exquisitely rendered cabaret piece that had everyone falling about in laughter.
Musical delights included songs by Helen Berenger, accompanied by Rick on guitar, soft jazz interpreted with feeling and impromptu notes by Elisabeth Hansz, newcomer and guests Ralph singing and on guitar, Marilyn’s sharp instrumentals on acoustic guitar.
North London LETS members Maggie Boyd singing, accompanied by Mary Herivel on piano, delivered a superb rendering including some classical chamber music.
A big thanks goes to our event organisers’, treasurer’s and performers efforts, involvement and good/hard work, both in detailed preparations before, during and at the end of our evening, making this enjoyable evening event possible.
The good news is that North London LETS raised £225 at the Big Live Music Evening Fundraiser. So, many thanks to everybody’s efforts, involvement and great team work!
