Saturday 10th June 7.00pm saw the doors open at Rolls Royce Leisure Club for the first
BK’S HEROES SUMMER BALL.
The tables were set, balloons inflated, performers prepared and the bar was OPEN!
Will and pocket rocket Hannah had been unable to contain their excitement having burst
through the doors at, 6.15, but on the whole our Heroes had managed to contain themselves
and arrive at the allotted hour.
Arrival drinks in hand, a line of spectacular people entered the arena in an array of beautiful
dresses and suits, of various colours and hues. Noticeable, and much appreciated ,was the
homage to Ben with green appearing regularly, either as the main colour scheme or as
You all looked stunning!!!
Everyone seated, we were treated to a delicious three course meal prepared and served by the
wonderfully efficient and attentive staff at Rolls, with the fabulous Burni at the helm.
Thanks very much guys, your skill and professionalism is a credit to Rolls Royce.
Coffee followed the meal, or for many hardened drinkers another trip to the bar, as the crown
draw and raffle tickets were sold and everyone settled in for the entertainment to follow.
Our comedian and compere ‘Jed Stone’ then took to the stage and like the whirlwind he is
raised the gathered crowds current state of happiness from warm glow, to
‘Comedy Condition’ chortling euphoria, as the show was well and truly under way.
The first prize win of the evening went to the lovely Kami, after a close race and round of golf
with one of our extended Medical family and honoured guests, who had attended from Preston
Great father’s day/Christmas gift there Kami!!
The crowd nicely warmed up it was time for the first set from local band Fandjango.
This awesome five-piece gypsy jazz band, playing contemporary songs in their own unique
style (I know this one, hang on I’ll get it in a minute) were a massive hit and the dancefloor was
filled immediately, with everyone smashing out their signature moves and burning off some of
those extra calories gained from the meal.
Fandjango concluded their first set and now it was down to the serious business of raising
more lovely cash for BK’S with the crown draw and auction.
The draw had been eagerly anticipated with the £1050 pounds raised earlier in the evening to
be split 50-50 between the lucky winner and the charity.
Hushed silence and the winner is………………….. Kim Dean.
The crowd applauded but were then stunned and delighted as Kim refused to take the money
and generously donated it all straight back to BK’S.
Thank you Kim, your generosity truly touched us at BK’S and on behalf of myself, Fiona and
Dan may I offer our sincere gratitude.
Next up was the auction, with five wonderful prizes being hotly bid for. Whipped into a frenzy
By auction master Jed, the generous bidders also raised the magnificent further sum of £800.
Thank you to all you wonderful Heroes it was a magnificent sum of money and we hope the
winners are happy with their acquisitions.
Numerous varied and wonderful raffle prizes were then drawn, most notably the Superman
onesie, won and modelled by Deano from Fandjango during their next set and a pair of furry
slippers which later made a guest appearance on the dance floor, keeping Megan nice and
Fandjangos second performance had the dance-floor crowded and bouncing as everyone let
their happiness show. Even Martin Pooley was seen strutting his stuff, for the first time in living
memory, much to the amazement of his wife Rachel!
Amazing what a fantastic band and the power of BK’S HEROES can do!!!!!
Fandjangos performance was all too soon over but the dancing continued with music
provided by DJ Anthony.
Sadly the night came to an end and our Heroes reluctantly trailed away, some quietly and
discreetly, some loud and proud, but to a person all buzzing at having had a fantastic evening
of fun, laughter and great times.
An amazing amount of £5,400 was raised on the night.
BRING ON THE WINTER BALL!!!!!!!!
