We would like to say a massive thank you to our Graham who worked so hard organising the event and making it such a wonderful evening.
Thank you to The Saints Rugby Club for hosting the event, a beautiful setting for such a beautiful occasion.
The evening was very emotional with Graham reading our speech on DIPG and Paediatric Brain Tumour Research, followed by the boys beautiful Tribute video.
There were pea shooters and noisy balloons on the tables, which went down a treat, especially with the "grown ups" who had great fun pea shooting the other tables :-)
