AN EVENING OF ENTERTAINMENT

Stan BoardmanCollision Solutions sponsored an ‘Evening of Entertainment’ on Saturday night at The City of Manchester Stadium and raised over £30,000 for The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT).  Comedian, Stan Boardman and local Swing Singer Cole Page entertained the guests during the evening with the highlight being the Charity Auction, where a limited edition Bronze head of L.S. Lowry by the sculpture Sam Tomkiss raised £5,000 and a painting by George Aird (a great friend of L S Lowry) of Lowry’s ‘Going to the Match’ fetched over £2,000.  Both items were donated by The Grove Fine Arts Gallery.
 
Collision Solutions & One Call Business Services StaffLisa Quinn-Jones, Director of Collision Solutions said “This has been an amazing night, we are overwhelmed with the generosity of everyone, both the companies and individuals who have donated auction items and raffle prizes, as well as the guests who have dug deep into their hearts and pockets to support this very deserving charity”.
 
Paul Farrington, Chief Executive Officer of CAFT said “ We are extremely grateful to Lisa and Collision Solutions for their efforts as the evening was a great success and the money will be put to good use to enable disadvantaged and disabled children enjoy a holiday at the Farm.   CAFT is a unique charity that has been providing life-changing holidays, daytrips and Christmas Parties to terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children since 1992.  The Adventure Farm receives no funding from the government and relies on individuals and companies such as Collision Solutions to raise the £800,000 each year that it costs to run the Adventure Farm.”

RUBBING SHOULDERS WITH CELEBS!

 

The evening from a guest's point of view

Becky WantWhat a wonderful evening we had at the Collision Solutions Evening of Entertainment!

Jackie Ashworth started things off with her wonderful voice and saxophone... especially her incredible rendition of Baker Street! Rick Naylor entertained everyone with his amazing close-up magic at the same time – a great start to The Evening of Entertainment!

Cole PageThen it was time to take our places for the meal and I was fortunate to have Stan Boardman, Becky Want and Rick Naylor on my table.

Becky was a delight to talk to and Stan was quite simply, one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met... a true gentleman and genuinely funny.  As the food was served, Cole Page began to sing in his wonderfully charming manner, wandering around the tables singing some classic songs – ‘Fly me to the Moon’, 'It’s a Wonderful World’ amongst many more.

Collision Solutions StaffDuring ‘Bo Jangles’ he sat down next to Stan Boardman who promptly pinched Cole’s mouth organ to prove that he’s a better comic than musician!

Cole finished his act with over 200 people standing on their chairs, all swaying hand in hand and singing along to ‘That’s Amore’!

Once the dinner was over, Stan took to the stage and had the audience in tears with a hilarious routine which culminated with the infamous ‘Fokker’ joke!

A little later, I was intrigued to turn round to see Stan & Rick showing each other card tricks... they’d make a great double act!

This was truly an evening which I’ll never forget and, more importantly, will ensure that many deserving children will enjoy a holiday at The Children’s Adventure Farm that they will never forget.

OH WHAT A NIGHT!

 

Everyone gets into the spirit!And yes it was, a lot of hard work and effort but how rewarding with it all culminated in a very enjoyable evening.  Full of fun, lots of laughs, and I am sure some fairly hefty hangovers on the Sunday morning for some.  When back in October last year when Lisa phoned me to say that she was organising this and the date was set for may – I said she was mad as it takes a year to organise an event like this, but no, Lisa said it was possible and she was right, it was and I for one must hand it to her as the evening was a great success and raised over £30,000 for the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust.
 



What amazed me was not only the generosity of all the companies that we approached for items for both the auction and the raffle, but the fact that in the current economic climate how willing people were to dig deep into their pockets to bid so much for the items.  We were absolutely over the moon when the girls from the Clarins Counter at Selfridges agreed to provide goody bags for all the guests as well as a hamper full of Clarins products for a special raffle and best of all came along to the event and kept all of the ladies make-up fresh throughout the evening.
