15 March 2014 Record amount raised at Kent SOE talk!

Gilly Halcrow's talk on the Special Operations Executive on Saturday 15th March was awesome in many respects - not least in the record breaking amount of around £12,000 raised through ticket sales, donations and a terrific auction conducted with great enthusiasm and humour by Committee Member Prue Seddon's son, Tommy.  Around 120 friends gathered to hear the talk delivered by Gilly in a Union Jack waistcoat and enjoy a delicious dinner, brilliantly prepared and served from the tiny kitchen behind the main Hall.  The Committee had worked tirelessly to ensure a tremendous evening which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.  The final amount has still to be calculated but in the meantime the Trust is immensely grateful to Gilly and her Committee.
