Poppy’s fundraising success

Poppy: fundraiser extraordinaire

A huge thank you to Poppy and her mother Angie for organising a fantastic concert in Wookey Church on Saturday 25th February. Poppy was joined by a talented young oboist, Alice, and by Ashleigh, who is blind and an Amber beneficiary.

In the second half of the concert, Derek wowed the audience with a range of pieces, including the Black and White Rag and The Flight of the Bumble Bee – played in two different keys. Derek also took requests which the audience loved singing along too, as they did when joining all the musicians in the evening’s finale: Fly me to the Moon.

Poppy and Angie seemed to have involved the entire village in the evening and between them they served a splendid array of food and drink in the interval. Our thanks to them all for their generosity in raising over £800 for Amber through ticket sales, a raffle and donations.
