That’s a ‘Milky Wrap’…

Last night saw a group of Film and Media students from Hallam come together to make money for their final film project.
The Out O’ Date Milky Wrap Party took place at SOYO. (SOYO, Rockingham Street)

The night saw 250+ guests enjoying what was on offer, from discounted drinks, home made cakes, raffle prizes and beautiful jewellery form the collective creations of ‘Nanny May’, http://www.facebook.com/pages/Nanny-May/181852095183668?sk=wall , ‘Beau Bunny Jewellery’ http://www.facebook.com/pages/Beau-Bunny-Jewellery/137526536318309?ref=ts&sk=wall and ‘Shinyprettyjewellery’ http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=73528774382
All purchased items proceeds went to the overall fundraiser. Take a look at the Facebook pages to get more of an idea of the styles of jewellery on offer.

The evening was in full swing due to the unique styling of Jimmy May working the decks and keeping everyone entertained.

All members of the crew were out in full force to gain support for the film they had all worked so hard on, Jimmy May, Amy Tuffnell, Thomas Husbands, Emma Ward, David Palmer worked extremely hard in order to ensure all guests had an enjoyable night as well as giving themselves what could only be described as a well deserved ‘pat on the back’.

As well as providing the music, Jimmy May also directed the Out O’Date production so I was keen to get his thoughts on last nights event, “The night was extremely enjoyable from behind the DJ booth, it’s lovely to see people having such a great time to your music. I couldn’t have dreamt a better crowd would turn up – the guests were fantastic and so was the atmosphere. We must extend a hand to SOYO in thanks for everything they helped us out with, very accommodating venue and recommended to all that wish to have a private party! Bring on the next one!”

The venue was full of positive vibes and everyone there could be seen to having a good time, one wrap party guest, Verity Watkins exclaimed, ‘I really enjoyed the night, great music and cheap drinks all in aid of a good cause!’

The whole night was a complete success with just under £200 been raised to help towards the final production. Amy Tuffnell, ‘Out O’ Date’ producer says; “The money raised will be used towards the distribution of the film and also help us out when we enter it into upcoming film festivals”

I myself had an enjoyable night and wish all involved in Out O’ Date the best of luck for the future!
