The Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation and Investec invite you to ‘Our House’ on Wednesday 6th September at Castle Cornet to celebrate the purchase and opening of ‘Aggie’s Burrow’, with the money raised from the event going towards the furnishing and ongoing upkeep of the PPBF’s two Southampton properties.
Aggie’s Burrow is the charity’s second property in Southampton, named in memory of local schoolgirl Aggie Nicolle, who sadly lost her life to neuroblastoma in 2016. The Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation’s original property provided the Nicolle family with a home from home during much of Aggie’s treatment.
The event is a way for the charity to thank the Guernsey community for collectively raising funds to buy Aggie’s Burrow and they hope it will kickstart the ongoing fundraising campaign to pay for the upkeep of both properties.
Ongoing supporter, Investec Private Banking, is kindly sponsoring the charity’s celebration. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy an evening of food, drink and entertainment while raising money.
Guests will be greeted with a drink on arrival before enjoying a delicious hog roast. DJ: Javan will kick off the entertainment for the night, warming up the guests ahead of local band Sons of the Desert’s set. Guernsey’s favourite Ska band will be playing favourites from the 1970’s and 1980’s with tracks spanning from Bad Manners to Madness.
Jo Priaulx, co-founder of the Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation says: ‘We are so happy to have finally completed the purchase on Aggie’s Burrow, as having two properties will allow us to help so many more Guernsey families in their time of need.’
Gates open at 6pm

Hog Roast 6:30pm-7:30pm

Thank you to each and everyone of you that has made the purchase of The Burrow possible, we are proud to dedicate the flat to Aggie’s memory by renaming it ‘Aggie’s Burrow’. Aggie Nicolle was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in May 2014 and less than two years later the illness took her life. The PPBF’s accommodation near Southampton Hospital helped the family stay together as much as possible during Aggie’s treatment, and they have done much to support the charity in return.
We hope you will join us in celebration and share our event on Facebook HERE.
