End Polio Now Charity bash at Dukes 92 in Castlefield

Events | 05.03.2010

My good friend Christy who was working at Lytham Hall last year was part of a team organising a charity event at Dukes92 in Castlefield as part of their uni course a couple of weeks ago.

She asked me if I would pop along and document it for them, which of course I was delighted to do. The charity they were raising money for was ‘End Polio Now’ which is a fantastic cause. It was a James Bond themed evening, with cocktails, casino’s and a few surprises’s along the way…

These guys were awesome!  Vodka martini anyone?  I don’t think there was any danger of these cocktails being stirred instead of shaken…

The roulette and blackjack tables proved to be a hit.  I did have a go, but quickly realised that I won’t ever be bringing down the house.

Andrew Carter did a great set of classics and modern classics…

This was great fun – these guys were a bit of a ‘flash mob’.  They were wandering round the room, nobody knew who they were and they started out with a bit of spontaneous dancing which turned into a great routine.

They had some moves I tell you!
