SSNAP would like to say a HUGE thank you to all those that attended our Summer Garden Party at The George Hotel in Dorchester on Thames on Sunday! Whilst the aim of the event was to bring our SSNAP member community together and thank everyone for their regular support, we still raised over £1500 from the raffle and general stall donations, so thank you!
Please see below a host of photos from Sunday, showing fire eating, dancing, bouncy castles, balloon modelling etc. and a lot of cake!!
We all had such an amazing afternoon and hope you did too!
Look forward to seeing you next year.
Love Team SSNAP xx
