FRANK Water celebrates 10 years!

IMG_9082To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Bristol’s Water Charity, FRANK Water hosted a fun and fabulous fundraising event at Southville’s Thali Cafe last Thursday 14th May.

Among the guests were Bristol-based companies BART Ingredients, Salt Media, Kabuto Noodles & The Adventurists plus Paradigm Norton, FNZ, Amarelle and Lobster Pictures.

The evening kicked off with a welcome from FRANK Founder, Katie Alcott and the premiere of FRANK Water’s new short film that included footage shot at many of their water and sanitation projects in India.

A three course Thali banquet followed with delicious Indian snacks and pickles, Tiffin and deliciously cooling pistachio, ginger and chocolate Kulfi (creamy Indian ice cream) to finish.

IMG_9630As guests took their last spoonful, the auction began. With professional auctioneers on hand, the amazing prizes were snapped up by generous guests. Lots included a private tour of the Shaun the Sheep animation studios, Dinner for 2 at Romy’s Kitchen with a chauffeur driven car, a day out on the Bristol Packet with lunch from Bristol Picnic and more! It was straight onto the raffle where a lucky few people took home lunch for a week at Friska, coffee vouchers from Small Street Espresso and goodies from BART Ingredients.

Bidding over, the brilliant RSVP took to the stage with their fully interactive set of Bhangra numbers – guests stayed on to drink and dance till late.

In all, the evening raised more than £10,000 – money that will fund life-saving drinking water and sanitation for people living in poverty.
