I, on behalf of everyone at Poppys Place Animal Rescue, would like to say an enormous purr-filled thank you to every single one of you who worked, performed and came to our Mad Catter's Ball. It was an absolutely fantastic night and by the sounds of it, you all had fun too!
I would like to say an great big thank you to Jupiter Ray. I have seen you guys play on many occasions but this was by far a phenomenal show!! ....and those tails!!
I would also like to thank our gorgeous performers who greeted you on the street, showed you a little magic, threw fire around and stood at 9ft tall. Thank you Flux Dance Collective, Fyreflies, Dean Allen Jones &Seemore Smokerings!
To the stunning girls who performed behind the band in front of a starry night, you absolutely killed it! I loved every second of your performance and I know every single on of our guests loved it too. Thank you, Flight Aerial Arts!
Alice d'Lumiere hosted the night for us and what fun we had looking for the real Alice! You had everyone laughing and made the night what it was - Thank you!
I would also like to thank every single one of you who donated a prize to our raffle, raising an amazing £310!! A big thank you to Retro Me.co.uk for their retro photobooth! And a big thank you to the lovely ladies who ran our cocktail bar, they were rushed off of their feet - you guys drank the bar dry!
We wouldn't of looked so lovely without the help of Laura Southgate- thank you for sitting behind the sewing machine making tails, skirts, ears and hats!
A huge thank you to Simon Rudkins and Rob Graingerfor working so hard to capture the night!! You can find their photographs here.
And last, but certainly not least, I would like to say a HUGE HUGE thank you to Stafford Glover and his team at Colchester Arts Centre! You guys have been an absolute pleasure to work with and made everything possible! We could not have made this ball amazing without you!
So far, we have raised just over £2,500 for Poppys Place, we are still counting and waiting for a few final things to come in before we can announce the total amount raised. Every single penny of that will go straight into the rescue to help us to continue to care for all of the abandoned, unwell, stray and abused cats that come through our doors every day.
From the very bottom of our hearts, I would like to thank you!! Please do share your feedback and photos with us and we will certainly be seeing you next year!!
