Thank You Red Carpet Charity Film Night

Volunteers Louise & Alan Grimadell hosted their annual Red Carpet Charity Gala Film night at the QUAD, Derby for the second year running, along with associate sponsor Don Amott Caravans & Motorhomes.

For the second year running, the event proved extremely popular with tickets selling out well in advance. Guests were treated to fizz on arrival & canapes before the film began. Guests were also treated to a wealth of raffle prizes, including a pre-match meal and seats in the director’s box for Derby County. The film this year was A Roman Holiday, featuring Audrey Hepburn, which proved a popular choice.

Thanks to the kind generosity of those who bought tickets, Louise and Alan were able to raise over £1,600 for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire, and Rutland Air Ambulance.

Our thanks go to the deputy mayor of Derby, Mark Tittley, for attending, film critic Nigel Powlson for his informative introduction and everyone at QUAD, especially Charlotte Jopling, for making the evening flow smoothly as always. Special thanks go to Don Amott, as associate sponsor for the event.

Look out for information on next year’s event, where it promises to be bigger and better – an evening certainly not to be missed.

Thank you to everyone who helped organise and attended the night!
