Knees up for childrens charity

Hundreds of friends, patrons, trustees and supporters joined the children and staff of Ashford childrens charity The Caldecott Foundation as it travelled back in time with a
1911-themed Garden Party to celebrate its centenary. Held at Doddington Place, the home of Richard and Amicia Oldfield, the Wilkins Kennedy accountants-sponsored event saw a day
of fun, games and live entertainment including an Edwardian bingo variety show and a good old knees up, courtesy of Timberlina. Guests, many in Edwardian costume, enjoyed sideshows that ranged from a fortune-telling bearded lady to a human fruit machine and Punch & Judy. The grand finale was a live auction with lots that included a holiday at Whistler and the chance to be a brewer for a day at Shepherd Neame. More than 14,000 was raised for the Caldecott Centenary Appeal.
