Another successful benefit night

The Hobos

The second benefit night for the Friends of Windmill Gardens at the Windmill pub took place on Tuesday. Brilliant local band the Hobos entertained us again with their sparky folk music, while Jenny Cash (Son of Sue) added a more sardonic note to proceedings.

The raffle was another highlight of the evening. The great prizes included a £50 voucher to spend at Book Mongers in Coldharbour Lane, and a day pass for the Lido in Brockwell Park.

We raised more money by selling sausage rolls and slices of tortilla. And Sandra’s egg game kept ‘em coming back – especially host Seamus, who was determined to find the whole egg! He eventually succeeded, after spending a good proportion of the night’s bar takings!

Many thanks to all the artists who played, to Magdalen and Sandra for organising the raffle and Richard the compere, and especially to to Seamus and Kathleen for hosting.
