Hogan’s Walk

Above Is a picture of our God Daughter Daisy, from the day she was born, she has had a place in our hearts, such a fun loving little girl, most of you know Daisy’s story and about her condition and that the N.H.S. won’t fund any research into P.O.R.T.

Daisy has been so brave by undergoing so many tests and operations, we felt that we needed to give support, so we put a date in the diary .

We decided as a family to try and raise awarness and funds, so on the 20th March 2010 we are doing a sponsored walk at Creswell Craggs, We have many family and friends involved in this walk, so I know we are going to have a great day for Daisy. The walk raised £381 congratulations and many thanks from P.O.R.T.

Rudridge 10 Year Anniversary Charity Ball

Rudridge are very proud to have recently celebrated the 10 year anniversary of their company.
To help mark the occasion, a party was held in a Marquee on the football pitch at Selhurst Park, the home of Crystal Palace Football Club. Hosted by David ‘Kid’ Jenson, approximately 350 people attended and were entertained by hilarious comedian Ian Irving, and amazing Brit School Pupil…. singer Shanice Smith.
After the entertainment, the serious business of raising money for our nominated Charity ‘P.O.R.T.’ (see below) begun. Ian Irving was an incredible auctioneer and managed to raise an impressive £3.5k from the auction. Assisted by the raffle and a donation from Rudridge, we were able to raise a grand total of £8,500 for the Charity. A huge thank you to everyone for being so generous, especially the companies who donated prizes for the auction/raffle, and the successful bidders on the auction.
The evening ended with music from Live Band ‘Payback’, with some classic ‘Dad Dancing’ moves on view from the men.
A memorable evening and one that we hope to repeat at our 20 year anniversary.
