Last Saturday I was lucky enough to be invited by Devon’s Crealy to its annual charity firework spectacular!
Wow! What a fantastic evening, the firework display – all set to dramatic music – was met by plenty of ‘Oooohs’ and ‘Aaaahs’ (mostly from my two little boys who loved every minute!).
Before the fireworks Adam Isaac, a local musician and participant of the BBC’s TV programme The Voice, kept the crowds entertained with songs from his new album Train Tracks.
And this was all in aid of Crealy’s nominated charity, Families for Children – a voluntary adoption agency for Cornwall, Devon and Dorset and the charity place children from all over the United Kingdom with their new local families and a large part of their work is to offer long term support to the children and families in their adoptive placements.
I’ve since been told that over £5,000 was raised on the night – from donations and Crealy itself, who donated all the night’s entry. What a great effort for a fantastic cause!
I was particularly proud to donate and help such a worthy organisation which is doing something close to my heart. I am full of admiration for the thousands of people who work to help find families for children without.
Well done to everyone who came, enjoyed and, most of all, donated!
Also, a big fat ‘thank you’ to Crealy for its support of Families for Children.

I hope you enjoyed Bonfire Night – whatever you did!
