Charter Ball a Huge Success

Paul Taylor, Headmaster writes : “The Charter Ball, which was held at Easton Grange on Saturday evening in aid of the College’s 150th Anniversary Appeal, was a great success, and not just financially. The venue (which was so generously donated by the Kerr family) was quite superb, and while the main objective of the evening was indeed the raising of funds for our Appeal, it was also lovely to see so many College and Brandeston parents joining OFs and other friends and governors of the College in having a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

We are hugely grateful to the Ball Committee, whose tireless work under the leadership of Mel Dellow made the evening the success that it undoubtedly was. We are also indebted to all those who generously donated prizes for auction, and indeed to all those who supported the Appeal through their very attendance at the evening. Such generosity is very much valued and appreciated, and we are delighted to report that the event managed to raise over £16,000 for the 150th Anniversary Appeal.”
