Christmas Dinner

Thursday, December 17th 2015

Last night 53 ‘friends’ and volunteers convened at Wathgill for Foxglove’s annual Christmas dinner, a traditional 5 course extravaganza. 


We were serenaded with some festive tunes during our meal by two members of the Royal Armoured Corps Band, Pete on Sax and Ed on keyboard and they weren’t the only talented musicians in the room.

Later on we had twins, Martin and Connor playing some modern hits on guitar and flute, they also provided accompaniment for their mum Lesley who sang ‘Silent Night’ in two languages for us! A bit later on we had young Alicia who borrowed Ed’s keyboard, to play us some beautiful modern classical music. 

After the meal, the raffle was held, with Matt announcing the winners, unbelievably his name was the first to be drawn!! …..and finally everyone was put out of their misery ……Glennis gave us the answers to the quiz.

A big thank you to all the catering staff at Wathgill and also to everyone who helped out in any way small or large to make this such an enjoyable evening.
