I thought it might be a difficult evening but I really wanted to be there because I’m sure that that is what Holly would have wanted too.
It got off to a fitting start with the dance routine that Holly had helped choreograph with the (then) year 7s – and I had just seen the segued music track that I worked on with her for that project this morning in my iTunes folder. Holly was so proud of the work she did there and especially of the t-shirt she was given for doing it, so it was good to see it performed.
All the musical acts were great. There is such a lot of talent at HVC (there always seems to be) and it seems unfair to single any of them out but I do have to say that when Laura Lowe sang the song she wrote for Holly… well, you just floored me girl! It was simply beautiful.
So a massive thank you to all of Holly’s friends, the staff at HVC and all the parents involved in making tonight’s event so special. And beyond that you’ve all managed to raise a lot of money for Holly’s Footprint. We’ll announce that when we get a firm figure.
Thanks again to everyone involved… Holly would have been very proud of every single one of you 🙂
