On Friday 15th November, Russ and Lynne Bennett celebrated their 40th Wedding Anniversary, with forty of their close friends and family, at a Motown Evening at the Prestigious Café Shore. Russ and Lynne very kindly arranged that £5 from each guest ticket sold for the evening would be donated to Variety, the Children’s Charity, for one of its special current appeals.

As a result, a cheque for £1,000 was presented, during the evening, by Café Shore to Frances Cornelius, Chair of Variety Wessex, and members of the Variety Wessex Committee.
