130 guests braved the typical British weather to join us for our ‘Blow out with Blowers’ on 10th June 2019.
Henry regaled our guests (in his own inimitable style) with uproarious anecdotes, skillfully cajoled by our MC for the evening, Roger Dakin.
To raise funds during the night guests were treated to array of lots that they could bid for in our silent and live auctions. But the main attraction – apart from Henry (!) – was the raffle in which one lucky guest won 10 VIP tickets and hospitality for Day 2 of the Ashes, worth over £10,000!
Thanks to the incredible generosity of our guests we raised over £20,000 on the night in support of King Edward VII’s Hospital and its charitable work delivered through the Centre for Veterans’ Health.
We were honoured to be joined by over 50 guests at our exclusive Berry Bros. & Rudd wine tasting event on 12th March 2019.
Jane MacQuitty delighted guests, as ever, with her expert knowledge: pitting New World against Old World wines.
Unsurprisingly, our raffle prizes were wine related, and many congratulations to our winners:
Richard Fairburn who walked away with a bottle of each of the wines tasted throughout the evening. Peter Reilly was the welcome recipient of three bottles of Berry Bros. & Rudd Champagne, and our very own Fundraising Manager, Alexandra Stainov, was the worthy winner of the much coveted Berry Bros. & Rudd award winning book, ‘Exploring and Tasting Wine: A Wine Course with Digressions’.
As the evening due to a close, all guests departed with a goody bag containing a Berry Bros. & Rudd Champagne stopper and corkscrew.
Thanks to the generosity of all who attended we raised over £6,000.
For many of our loyal supporters our traditional Carols, Readings & Music for Christmas held at St Marylebone Parish Church marks the beginning of the festive season.
Over 400 guests joined us to hear Sir Derek Jacobi gave a powerful reading of Refugee Blues (W H Auden) and Jermain Jackman (winner of The Voice 2014) stunned the audience with his live performance of O Holy Night.
To round off the evening, Mark Heard (Head Chef) and his team treated guests to home-made mince pies and mulled wine!
