Caroline Spurrier, of Crow’s Hall in Debenham has set herself the challenge of raising funds for CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families.

Caroline will be supporting the charity through her Opera in the Barn event on Saturday May 31, when a raffle and auction will be held, and 10% of ticket sales will be donated to help CLIC Sargent provide clinical, practical and emotional support to children and young people with cancer.

Caroline said: “I’m really proud to be able to help this worthy charity. We have all been touched in some way by cancer and I personally know several people who have benefited from the support that CLIC Sargent give, and I have seen the major difference they make to these families. Without the support of CLIC Sargent, my friends suffering would have been even greater. It is hoped our long term partnership with the charity can raise in excess of £10,000, which will be just wonderful.”

CLIC Sargent fundraising manager Alison Ramsay said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Caroline has chosen to support CLIC Sargent. This will be the second of a three-year partnership so we really appreciate the hard work that goes into the event and her commitment to raising money – every penny raised will help provide vital support for children and young people with cancer, and their families.”

The opera is a thrilling experience performed by London Festival Opera with a select chamber ensemble. It brings together established artists from the major British opera companies with exceptional young singers. The evening includes a full costume highlight performance of Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte, followed by a performance of favourite encores.

The gates open at 4pm and tea, strawberries and Pimms are served on the lawn from 4.30pm. Drinks and canapés are served in the interval and there is a chance to meet the performers at the end before enjoying your own picnic in the barn or grounds.

Tickets cost £55 per person (discount for groups). For more information
