Festive fundraising at the 2017 Christmas party

On Sunday 17th December we once again celebrated the work of the HVT at our annual Christmas party, attended by around 60 supporters of the trust. The evening kicked off with a series of sketches by comedy duo Moon, followed by a violin performance by Ravi Veriah-Jacques. We had a very successful auction, ably conducted by our auctioneer, returning guest of honour and honorary trustee Tracy Brabin MP. The raffle draw, organised by trustee Paul Webster, also raised a healthy sum. Over all, the event raised an estimated £6000 for the Assunta schools, matching last year’s record-breaking total. Many thanks to those who came along and made the event such a success!

Thank You...

“Firstly, I like thank the HVT programme. They have helped my family by giving me uniforms, school shoes, meals on a daily basis during recess and revision books to study.The tuition has helped me improve my writing skills and I am better at my school work. I would also like to thank the teachers for teaching me how to be successful in school.”
