Happy Couple win a £21k wedding
Local wedding planner Kerry Heathcote of Snapdragon Weddings sold raffle tickets to hundreds of couples last year, with a chance to win a wedding and honeymoon worth over £21k. Through raffle ticket sales and a fundraising ball Snapdragon Weddings raised a fantastic £3,928, all of which was donated to The Forever Friends Appeal’s NICU campaign. This campaign funded 50% of The Dyson Centre for Neonatal Care at the Royal United Hospital, Bath.
Every part of the wedding was donated by local companies and together they created a dream wedding for the lucky couple. The happy couple exchanged rings made by Nicholas Wylde during a civil ceremony.
The winners Katie Mclean and Andrew Hurrell of Bradley Stoke celebrated their wedding day recently at Bailbrook House in Bath. The bride, Katie said “Andrew and I were absolutely over the moon to win such an amazing prize which has completed changed our lives. The icing on the cake was that the money raised is going to such a wonderful and special cause to help the smallest babies at the RUH.”
Zoe Tainton of The Forever Friends Appeal said: “We are utterly grateful for all the efforts made by Kerry and everyone involved in creating the wedding. They all helped to achieve such a fantastic project. The Dyson Centre for Neonatal Care has exceeded our expectations and is a wonderful model for future healthcare buildings.”
