It’s always great having the opportunity to do some work for a good cause – and they don’t come much better than Grace Secondary School. Grace is a school that has been built in the Sudan, a hugely underprivileged area of the world where education is sorely lacking. Richard and Claire Budd started the 100% non-profit charity a few years back and have managed to raise a whopping £116K!
Every year they organise a fundraiser in the form of a Christmas charity ball – and this year we turned out to shoot it for them. The event actually fell on the same weekend as Suzy and Ryan’s wedding (see previous entry) so we were blessed/cursed with 8 inches of snow at this rural event. Despite many trials on the day which included the venue cancelling, the DJ cancelling and the band being informed that the event was off – Richard and Claire managed to pull it all together and a great night was had by all.
Big thanks to those involved:
