On the 30th November 2017, Harbour Place held its 21st Anniversary Celebrity Evening at the Humber Royal Hotel in Grimsby. The evening was supported by 133 people who braved extremely cold weather and snow on the ground to attend our event. The evening started with a VIP reception with free drinks available for some of our guests and then moved into the function room where the staff at the Humber Royal had done a fantastic job of making the place look great. Each table was set beautifully and some of our team came in to put the finishing touches to the tables with lights and balloons.
We sat down to a lovely three course meal and then participated in games, raffles and an auction before hearing from our two wonderful guests. Firstly Gary Skyner entertained us with some rather risqué but very funny jokes and then Ricky Tomlinson got up and told us about some of his history with anecdotes from stories past. Whilst all this was going on Louise and the Barclays team supported us by organising the raffle. Barclays support us every year by match funding our raffle sales and this year we were match funded £1840. Along with the support of many individuals and organisations who donated raffle and auction prizes, we managed to raise £12,000 to support Harbour Place. Thanks to all involved with just some of them listed below.
