Becks’ World Land Trust Ceilidh

Hi there! I’m Becks and I’m on a mission. Over the next few years, I have set myself a challenge to raise £5000 to save 50 acres of Rainforest for my favourite charity, the World Land Trust. I’m setting myself crazy challenges to reach this target, so keep an eye on my Facebook page for updates! I’ve raised just over £1500 so far, protecting 15 acres of beautiful Rainforest forever, thanks so much for all of your support!

A previous successful ceilidh in May 2017

The last couple of Ceilidhs have been so much fun, so I’ve organised another one for Saturday May 25th 2019!! The incredible Cambridge University Ceilidh Band will be playing for us at St Pauls Church, Hills Rd, Cambridge CB2 1JP and we will have a drinks bar, a raffle (with incredible prizes, including sponsors from all over Cambridge which I am super grateful for) and much more! Come and join us for an unforgettable evening of country dancing, music and laughter!

Tickets: Are ONLY £8 in advance (£10 on the door) and include a FREE glass of bubbly in our sparkling drinks reception. Please visit my Facebook page:  World Land Trust Ceilidh Cambridge 25.05.19, or email me for event tickets.
