It was great to see everyone come together for a social event at the club last Saturday after such a challenging period of time. It was a thoroughly enjoyable Thai-themed evening of food, music, dancing and raffle prizes hosted by Malinee Duckworth.

The event was in aid of One Phuket Charity and we'd like to say a massive thank you to all those members and guests who came along to support it. With your generosity, an incredible £1,400 was raised – this will feed 400 households for a week on the beautiful island of Phuket, Thailand. 
 
Malinee would like to express her heartfelt gratitude to:

  • The Bearsted & Thurham Tennis Club for making it happen!
  • Elizabeth Laurent for the organisation and rushing to Tesco last minute to get more white wine, a very important task!
  • Mike Judders for the entertainment and performing the compositions in tribute to King Bhumipol, King Rama the 9th of Thailand
  • Kim Martin and Gary Duckworth for manning the bar for the evening
  • Diane Martin for her donations for the raffles
  • Kevin Isted for his donation for the raffles
  • Alan & Christine Thomas for the generous donation of a BIG bottle of wine and running the card game
  • Elizabeth Laurent and Rachele Laurenson for running the raffles so efficiently!
  • Sandy & Russ Chidwick for lending me the crockery
  • All those involved with the clearing up - too many to name!
