Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

MORE than 100 peo­ple were en­ter­tained at a black­tie fundraiser.

The din­ner was held at Hall Barn, Bea­cons­field, on Fri­day, Septem­ber 26, and raised more than £4,000 for Brain Tu­mour Re­search – the cho­sen char­ity of for­mer mayor Sandy Saun­ders, whose daugh­ter died from the dis­ease.

The din­ner, which was the in­au­gu­ral event pro­moted by The Bea­cons­field Her­itage Trust to com­mem­o­rate the 250th an­niver­sary of the Lit­er­ary Club, co-founded by Sir Joshua Reynolds and 18th­cen­tury Bea­cons­field politi­cian Ed­mund Burke, was fol­lowed by a talk by Jesse Nor­man, au­thor of the biog­ra­phy of Burke.

Mr Saun­ders said:
