Turn to Starboard held its annual Dining In Night at The Falmouth Hotel on Saturday, with almost 200 guests attending.
VIP guests included Trustees Wing Commander Mike Pritchard and Skinners Brewery Director Mike Harris, along with Patrons Henry Davies and Coxless Crew rower Laura Penhaul. Special guests also attending the glittering event included Mr and Mrs Croft who recently gifted the charity a 47-foot yacht.
Auction prizes on the night included a holiday on Tresco Island in the Isles of Scilly, a weekend break on board classic yacht and a day sail on board the Spirit of Falmouth. Various lots were also donated by generous local businesses and individuals.
Turn to Starboard CEO and founder Shaun Pascoe spoke about how the incredible support the charity had received over the last 12 months had helped provide more sailing opportunities for beneficiaries.
Event Organiser Ellen Przybylska said: “This was our second fundraising dinner and the evening was a huge success. Once again our kind and generous supporters pulled together to raise valuable funds to help us continue to support veterans affected by military operations.”
