Girls Day out 2018

Girl's Day Out - Edinburgh 17th March 2018

Lisa Gray (Trustee) with her team, once again organised a fabulous Girl's Day Out in Edinburgh.

All 360 women enjoyed a fun-filled day of music, dancing, games and friendship.

Lisa talked passionately about Footprints and Kerry gave an update of the latest children to join the Footprints Family. It never ceases to amaze us all just how generous people are and in total the day raised a staggering £19 000.

Although this is a huge amount of money it is truly needed to keep Footprints alive.

A huge 'thank you' goes to Lisa, her committee and all of the wonderful women of Edinburgh, you really are making a difference. 

 We are awaiting with anticipation this years Girl's Day Out in the beautiful city of Edinbugh.

Each table of 10 people is £350 - £35 a ticket - as always tickets sold quickly

Lisa and her team are busily preparing everything to make it as good as last year.

In 2018 this is what we have to look forward to:

A red carpet arrival with a Piper playing to welcome everyone in.

Butlers in the Buff – Stand with drinks and take people to their table, they will then be assigned to that table once everyone is in.

The event will be hosted by Davie Martin from Radio Saltaire

Welcome speech by Lisa and Kerry

Games- Heads and Tales

Best dressed prize, (so think about that outfit!)

Donna Glass singing

Kerry's speech - The challenges and highlights of the past year!

Instant Raffle

Food served - a hot fork buffet

Irish Bingo

Auction - lets make even more money!

Motown Brothers play their second set

Disco until close at 8 pm - chill out and relax with friends of Footprints.

A new venue was chosen for 2017, so that even more women could join the fun and raise money for the children of Footprints. 


On the 11th March, 360 women attended the 4th GDO.

All of the tickets were sold within 2 hours of going on sale.

Amazing!

So what happened throughout the day?

A Piper welcomed everyone in from 11.45am

Butlers in the Buff – gave out drinks and took people to their table, serving drinks for the first part of the afternoon.

Lisa welcomed everyone and the party began.

Rachel, (aged 13) sang for us, what a wonderful talent she has. She sang Rolling in the Deep, by Adele and it brought tears to our eyes. A huge ' thank you' goes to her and her mum that accompanied her. It must have been terrifying singing in front of such a huge audience - but she was terrific. A talent to watch in the future.

Kerry's speech followed - she talked about the challenges and highlights of the past year!

Then we had the Instant Raffle- huge fun and masses of prizes.

The fabulous Motown Brothers then played their first set, which was fabulous, they got everyone out of their seats dancing.

The Auction - made lots of money!

Food was served - we were certainly ready to eat and it was delicious.


It was then up and dancing again to the Motown Brothers playing their second set.

The disco saw us all enjoying a good old dance until the end of the event.
The ladies chilled out and relaxed with friends, in the knowledge that they had enjoyed a great day out and raised a considerable amount to help Footprints continue to support and nurture young and vulnerable children in Kenya.


Thank you to you all for joining us and you are most welcome again next year.
