350 guests joined EACH at their first ever Gala evening and auction, and Turner & Last were very proud to be in that number. The auction, ticket sales and donations raised a total exceeding £300,000, on a night where EACH ambassador Ed Sheeran wowed the crowds with his only 2016 UK performance.
Turner & Last donated a unique tailored watch experience, with our acclaimed watchmaker, Simon Michlmayr, and were excited to see the lot raise £7,000 for the cause. Thank you to all who raised their hand and made it possible.
The East Anglian Children’s Hospice have been supporting children and their families through difficult times with care and compassion for over 25 years. Their premises, though beautiful were never purpose built, and can longer cater for number of visitors required. Therapists, parents and children are also having to travel huge distances to North Norfolk in order to enjoy hugely important hydrotherapy pool classes.
The Nook Appeal aims to raise £10m in order to build an all new premises, which will increase capacity, create a new modern, purpose-built environment and bring a pool and other facilities on site.
Ed Sheeran commanded the stage, with an incredible performance, joking that he hadn’t played the songs for over a year, and that he had been listening to them 4 hours ago to remember the words. You wouldn’t know it from his slick, professional performance however. A late addition to the auction gave guests the chance to bid for a selfie with Ed, raising a further £6,000 for the charity.
It was a night to remember and one we were very proud to be a part of. Thanks to EACH for having us, and for organising such an impressive evening’s entertainment.
