The East CAFOD Action Team (CAT) celebrated midwinter in fine style on Friday 8th February. On behalf of the Team, Bernie Slater writes:
The Hometowners and Tony Downes are a local comedy/folk group. They entertained us for most of the evening with hilarious tales and banter, which had the audience in stitches, and sang some lovely folk tunes, some of which we could join in with. Also entertaining us were St Edward’s musicians who played a medley of songs/tunes ranging from Irish folk to Bob Dylan.
There were between 135 and 145 people there and all asked for more. It was a really great night with a fabulous atmosphere. There were so many raffle prizes donated that many of the audience took a prize home. We raised £299 on the raffle alone.
It was a brilliant night!
Please note, The Hometowners and Tony Downes have offered to play at any other parish who wishes them to. Contact Bernie for details: firstname.lastname@example.org
