Thousands raised at Chester Grosvenor Ladies Lunch

Written by Emma on 6th July 2018

Hosted at the prestigious Chester Grosvenor, 70 guests attended our recent special event to raise funds – and we’re delighted to announce the event raised almost £5,000. 


Attendees enjoyed a glass of bubbly whilst browsing stalls in a pop-up boutique shopping area before sitting down to a sumptuous lunch prepared by Michelin-starred executive chef Simon Radley and a talk by guest speaker, entrepreneur Joy Foster.


As the founder of the award-winning enterprise Techpixies and recent winner of the Institute of Directors London and South Start-up of the Year, Joy entertained the audience with stories of her success and how her company helps empower women to return to work.


Professional singer Andy Bayley regaled attendees with a number of swing classics made famous by Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble and more. A competition and raffle also saw guests get the chance to win a number of prizes including a LK Bennett handbag and afternoon tea for two at the Chester Grosvenor.


Corporate & Events Fundraiser Samantha Lee comments: “We are really pleased with how well our Ladies Lunch event at the Chester Grosvenor went. It was a very special occasion and the money raised will directly impact the lives of the children we support across the UK. This event was only possible thanks to the support of our sponsors, accountancy firms McLintocks and Pursglove & Brown, and we would also like to thank all the guests for their generosity in helping us raise these much-needed funds.”

Thank you to everyone that supported and attended our event and view some of the pictures from the event here:
