Student event raises over £3,500 for the Poole Africa Link

 On Friday 22 March 2013,  five Bournemouth University Event Management students successfully organised a wonderful evening full of food, music, dance and fundraising at The Haven Hotel, Sandbanks. The black tie dinner and auction was in aid of the locally based charity, Poole Africa Link, who send out doctors and nurses to the Wau district of South Sudan to improve the health care currently being provided.

The James Bond themed event included a fantastic array of entertainment, from an auction and raffle, including Bond inspired prizes, to international champion dance performances and a great live show by four-piece jazz band, The Brightside Band. The group of five had an extremely successful evening, raising over £3,500 for the charity. Team leader, Francesca Gorvin said “We would like to thank everyone who helped make this event possible: our sponsors, Unicorn Training and Pennyfarthing have been extremely generous, and to all our guests for making the night such a fantastic success”.
