The Dante Concert benefit took place last Saturday, and the Trust is most grateful to Clive James and Patrick Hemmerlé for their poetry and playing, and to Gonville and Caius College for hosting the event. The concert was sold out long before the performance, so for those of you who didn’t manage to get a ticket, here are some pictures from the evening.

The auction in progressBidding at the Doodle Auction

 

The Doodle Auction in March was a triumph, with over £7,000 being raised for the Jean Grove Trust. We are most grateful to all of the bidders and doodlers who contributed to the success of the evening. Two officers of the Trust will be travelling to Ethiopia in the spring to visit the schools – on their return, we will be able to update you on the use to which these funds are being put. There are further photographs of the auction on our facebook page.
