Charity Gala Dinner Dance in Whitstable

Jan Modell and Sue Fewkes are organisers of a Gala Dinner and Dance which was held 18th November 2023 at the Marine Hotel Whitstable.


CommunityAd Exclusive - Charity Gala Dinner Dance in WhitstableThe Gala Dinner Dance was in aid of Holding On Letting Go and Crohn’s and Colitis Association, we both feel passionate about both of these charities as we are very aware of the growing number of children who lose a parent through either illness or other tragedies. These children need a very special type of support to get through such an unimaginable bereavement process.

Sadly, there seems to be a growing incidence of Crohn’s and colitis not only in adults but increasingly in children; whether this is as a result of better awareness of the disease/change in diets; Crohn’s and Colitis Association can offer support/information and working in areas of research to improve quality of life.

Our event in 2021 raised just over £6,000 for Whitstable Lifeboat & Coeliac UK, which they were both thrilled to receive and this year we hoped to raise even more for our amazing charities through our 2023 event.

As part of the fundraising events during 2023 were two quiz nights held by Tankerton Arms and Whitstable Ladies Social Group and a Gastronomic evening at Wheelers Oyster Bar. These events added towards our final total following our Charity Gala Dinner Dance held at The Marine Hotel Whitstable on 18th November raising an incredible £9,000.

We had the most amazing support from local businesses and would like to thank them and The Marine Hotel for helping us to reach this outstanding total.
