Beverly Loxstonbown, founder of the charity, summed up the event: “What an amazing evening! I was blown away by the talent, kindness and generosity of everyone there.”

Jonathan Frost, minister at the church which hosted the event, commented “It’s always a privilege to raise money for such worthwhile causes. What Beverly and her colleagues are doing to support carers in Crawley is absolutely wonderful.”
