Gambia and Avon Fire Services in Partnership – GAFSIP – Charity Event

Aces Fun Casinos are very proud to have been asked to help raise funds at this prestigious event. As many of our clients know, a casino is a great way to entertain and raise funds at the same time. We are looking forward to a very lively evening with blackjack and roulette tables in high demand. To add a flavour of Africa – whilst helping to remind guests why they are there, the fun ‘currency’ of the evening will be an exchange between pounds sterling and Gambian Delasi and a prize for the highest roller at the end of the night. Avon Fire & Rescue Service (AF&RS) is to hold this ball to mark the 25th anniversary of The Gambia and Avon Fire Services in Partnership (GAFSIP), a charity set up to support the Gambia Fire and Rescue Service. The black-tie event will be at the Grand Hotel, Broad Street, Bristol on Friday 21 October. A drinks reception, three course meal and live entertainment will be provided. Tickets are £40.00 each. GAFSIP was formed in 1991 when former AF&RS Chief Fire Officer Dave Hutchings was on holiday in The Gambia. He witnessed a road traffic collision in which a number of people died due to a lack of fire cover in the country. Dave was so moved by the tragedy that on his return to Avon he sought the support of Avon Fire Authority, to raise funds and send equipment no longer being used in Avon to The Gambia.
