In September 2016, Cruise Cotterill sponsored a charity event which was took place in Plymouth in the United Kingdom, to raise money for the local Plymouth Sea Cadets.
The QE2 themed charity gala dinner event took place on 24 September 2016 at the Duke of Cornwall Hotel in Plymouth. In total 150 guests attended the charity event, including former Captains and crew of the famous ocean liner, sea cadets, as well as past passengers and local business owners.
Harry Cotterill produced a detailed large scale drawing of the Queen Elizabeth 2 which was a raffle prize at the event. The drawing of the former Cunard ocean liner raised a total of £350 for charity!
Guests at the event enjoyed a five-course dinner, sparkling wine and live entertainment. In total the charity event raised £1,450.00.
The YouTube video below was filmed by students from City College, Plymouth. The announcement of the winner of the Queen Elizabeth 2 drawing produced by Harry Cotterill is captured in the video at 4:15 onwards.
Harry Cotterill set up his blog when he was just 16-years old, making him one of the youngest cruise bloggers in the world. In later years he became known across the world for his amazing talent of drawing cruise ships!
