Carr Gomm’s Dundee service has raised an incredible £921.64 with their Fundraising Gala!
On Friday, the 1st of September, our Dundee service held a fantastic Fundraising Gala at the Brooksbank Centre.
The event featured various activities for people of all ages to enjoy. There were several raffles where you could win prizes ranging from beauty products and Carr Gomm merch to Dundee FC tickets and fabulous gift hampers. Check out the list of winners at the bottom of the page and see if you got lucky!
The Brooksbank Centre generously donated the venue to support the fundraiser, and the Carr Gomm staff and volunteers were excellent in helping the fun and wild activities take place.
There was a range of stalls where people could buy children’s activity packs, play with sensory toys and even a delicious bakery stall selling goods, including cupcakes, rainbow cakes, cookies and Rice Krispies treats! Birthday cakes to celebrate Carr Gomm’s 25th Birthday delighted everyone and tasted delicious, too!
The petting zoo let people see and play with some adorable and unusual animals– from the cute and cuddly guinea pigs, rabbits and chinchillas to large snakes and iguanas. There were squeals, shrieks and lots of laughter as people got to play with animals they wouldn’t usually get to see.
Throughout the event, DJ Chris created a party vibe with a mix of classic bangers and modern hits, to the delight of everyone in attendance.
The Elsa (Frozen) backdrop provided an excellent setting for the Photobooth. Along with hats, props and masks, people took the chance to strike their best pose and commemorate the event.
“It was an amazing event. I had so much fun!” – said a person in attendance.
The event also featured a visit from some very special guests – Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Scooby-Doo! The gang were on hand to pose for pictures, bringing smiles to everyone’s faces!
The Fundraising Gala was an excellent event that brought people together and helped raise money for an important cause.
