Ross woman raises £2,000 for local charity

Julie Evans, a milliner who runs Moor Fascinators in Ross on Wye has helped to raise an amazing £2,000 for a local charity. Julie is a volunteer for Phoenix Bereavement, which supports children, young people and their families in Herefordshire when someone close to them dies. She took on the ambitious project of organising a Black Tie dinner and charity auction at Penyard House, on the old Gloucester road. The lots for the auction and for the raffle were all donated free by local businesses, including Rayeesa’s Indian Kitchen, Forage Fine Foods, Pip’s Cider, Herefordshire Hampers and Zane’s Wine Bar. Other incredible prizes - sourced by another Phoenix volunteer, Dawn Ford - included the use of an Audi A8 for a weekend, a tandem sky dive, a ticket for Play nightclub and a day pass for Wye Leisure in Fownhope. The atmosphere at the event was electric as diners tried to outbid each other. Another highlight of the evening was a ‘Tina Turner’ tribute act, which had everyone up and dancing. Julie was absolutely delighted and said, ‘I love doing these events for Phoenix Bereavement because I think they do a fantastic job, and bereaved children and families in Herefordshire really need their support.’
