The latest React event made sure everyone was feeling the right shade of blue on Saturday 28th September, with a Blues Brothers themed evening, held at the Bank of England Sports Centre, Roehampton.

Guests were transported back to the 1980s and enjoyed an authentic blues experience, dancing the night away to a live band and trying their luck in the ‘Hooch Bar’ raffle. A top of the range handbag was also a much coveted raffle prize, following a kind donation by Mulberry.

Guests also had the opportunity to join in with a live auction, generously bidding to provide specialist equipment for terminally ill children.

Thanks to the compassion and support of our guests, the evening raised in excess of an incredible £24,000.

React appreciates that our supporters are invaluable, and we thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for their kindness and generosity both at this event and beyond.

Thank you once again, and we hope to see you at the next React fundraiser!
