KARATE CHRISTMAS PARTY 2018

Summer Presentation Night 2018

With the world cup uncertainty and me just returning from Croatia, organising this years summer party was manic. I did not dare push it until after England lost on the Wednesday night as if they had made the final I would have been forced to cancel the whole thing. 

Taking this into consideration, the night was very successful in terms of how many families attended and on how many tombola and raffle prizes we collected. After all expenses were subtracted we made £602.00 for the funds which I think is excellent.

Thanks to everyone who attended and to all those who donated prizes. The party was busy thanks to many new families attending. 

Read my notes, listed below on who and why won the accolades. These were what I had with me on the night.
