Jean Haines and Sir Michael Parkinson at the 2010 Ellington Summer Music event
Sir Michael Parkinson and Hampshire artist Jean Haines are pictured with one of Jean's paintings at the recent Ellington Summer Music event at Wellington Riding.
Jean donated the picture to be auctioned, which raised a fantastic £1,675 for Macmillan Cancer Support. Jean has been a regular supporter of the Ellington event over the years and we really appreciate her generosity. For more information about Jean, please see www.jeanhaines.com
Along with the auction, Ellington attendees enjoyed a lovely summer evening of music and dancing - featuring Laurie Holloway, Becki Biggins, Kenny Lynch - which concluded with some incredible fireworks.
A big thank you to everyone who worked on and attended the event and to Sir Michael Parkinson, who compered the evening. We are very grateful for all the support and hope to have raised approximately £5,000 to enable Macmillan to help even more people affected by cancer.
