Caribbean Nights
 

Saturday 26th July 2003 -   Pagham, West Sussex.

Brightly coloured shirts, skirts and dresses, Calypso music, exotic drinks and great lighting effects, Marquee bedecked with palm trees and flower decorations and RAIN !! Well even Jamaica has rain but it didn’t dampen the spirits of the gathered throng and it soon eased off as the evening progressed.

Check out the pictures below to see just what everyone got up to !!

The Marquee had gone up on the previous Thursday and many helpers had transformed it into a magical, tropical location fit for an evening of live music, dancing, refreshments and fun. After feeding some 200 guests in record time with a choice of either Chilli con carne or Coronation Chicken with Baked Potatoes, the band, “Sticky Bun” played a wonderful range of music throughout the evening.

Necklaces of beads from New Orleans Mardi Gras were changing hands for nefarious reasons and favours during the early part of the evening and a prize was awarded to the guest who had collected the most beads through either their popularity or their guile.

The raffle raised a laugh and contributed to the overall profit on the night of over £2500 which has gone towards Meningitis Research.

To all those who were there, Jackie and Ray would like to say” thank you for your generosity and support and maybe we’ll see you next year……………” ???

 

What a Successful Night !!! Everyone who attended this event went home with a big smile on their face as they had a great time and at the same time raised a huge amount of money for meningitis research !!!
