On Friday 28th October, we attended The Mayor of Carlisle’s Charity Dinner which was held at The Shepherd’s Inn, Carlisle.
We were presented with ‘an evening of entertainment’ with International Comedy Entertainer Brenda Collins and local Swing Singer Andy Whitaker.
Greeted with a glass of champagne we were soon ushered into the main room for a fantastic 4 course dinner. Comedienne Brenda Collins then took to the stage… after 40 years in show business Brenda has built up a reputation second to none. Her clean inoffensive comedy brought the house down.
Shortly followed by Swing singing sensation Andy Whitaker, the evening turned out to be truly memorable.
The evening’s activities were in aid of the Mayor’s beneficiaries – Hospice @ Home (Carlisle and North Lakeland), NSPCC Carlisle, Citizens’ Advice Bureau (Carlisle) and Community Projects Carlisle. A raffle offered great prizes including Carlisle United match tickets and pre-match dinner at Foxy’s restaurant which was won by Robin Brown.
Overall, £800 was raised on the night which is fantastic for all involved.
