A Sell-Out Show for Sophie!!!

The final major fundraiser was held at the Adrian Mann Theatre on Sunday 2nd December. Commencing with a powerpoint presentation of all the fundraising events that have been happening throughout the year, the audience enjoyed a variety show of music, dance and comedy sketches, performed by the Banstead 5 churches youth group, "Six of the Best" Dance Troupe, Rosebery School's Big Band & the Sixth Form Singers, The "Fusion Players" amateur dramatic society, along with some of Sophie's friends reading her poems, and a wonderful rendition of "Music of the Night" by Joe Claus.
We were delighted to present a cheque for £40,000 to Darren Hargraves, the Oncology Consultant who is researching into paediatric brain stem tumours at the Royal Marsden. He said every penny will go into this vital research and it WILL make a difference...
That has made it all worth while.
Thank-you to everyone who has helped in their own way to reach this amazing total.

Hi Carol,

I've just found your blog. Congratulations on the one hand, but sorry about the loss that prompted the journey.

We actually hiked LEJOG at almost the same time. See Can reply to this, if interested, at
