Celebrating 40 years of Porsche Centre Bournemouth with a gala black tie dinner


Celebrating a 40th birthday should always be special. Without question, our 40th anniversary gala dinner on Saturday 20 May was just that with over 100 people, dressed in their finest, in attendance. Merlins Catering prepared an exquisite three course meal which guests enjoyed while listening to Katie Francesca -whose amazing voice set the tone for the event. Later in the evening, guests enjoyed engaging stories from championship driver Mike Wilds and a superb raffle and auction presented by Stephen J Whitton and Miss International UK, Romy Simpkins.

Caroline Reed was our photographer for the event and there were some beautiful guest portraits taken during the evening - please contact her via her website if you wish to purchase any photos.

With a display of Porsche models from the last four decades, as well as a stunning example of a 356 Speedster, the enthusiasm for the brand was exceptional. Our auction was a tremendous success, raising in excess of £9,000. MacMillan Cancer Support and The Dorset Children's Foundation will each receive an equal split of the money raised. The generosity of our guests and contributors was overwhelming and we are extremely grateful.

Here's to the next 40 years...
