The sun shone on the drinks reception for the fourth annual summer supper held by The Young Lives Foundation on the lawns of Godmersham Park, courtsey of The King’s School, Canterbury and Fiona Sunley. The supper was preceded by a moving address from Stephen Gray, ceo of YLF, as he outlined the valuable work carried out by the 180 volunteers who devote 21,000 hours to vulnerable youngsters and troubled families throughout the county. Musical entertainment was provided by Alaric Green and Aaliyah Ginn, followed by Caroline Jones accompanied by Robert Reid and his jazz trio. The auction and raffle, conducted by YLF President Clive Emson, raised £9,000 and a further £20,000 pledged by volunteer Lord Denis James took the total raised from the evening to more than £30,000, a record for a YLF event.
