The Variety Wessex Committee held a fabulously glamorous Valentine’s event at the prestigious Lord Bute Restaurant in Highcliffe, Dorset on 14th February.The evening began with a drinks reception and a most scrumptious three course dinner with beautiful vocalist Jamie Franses singing favourites between courses.

A raffle, auction and great disco helped to make the evening more fun raising in excess of £4,000 on the night. Big thanks to Owners of The Lord Bute, Gary Payne and Simon Box, great staffing on the night organised by Chris and his colleagues.

Thank you to everyone who donated the wonderful auction and raffle prizes and to those who supported the event. The proceeds of which will go towards winter coats for underprivileged children and life changing special equipment within the region.
