Ladies Lunched at the Lord Binning
On Wednesday 14th May, we welcomed our female supporters to our first ladies event of the year, with guest speaker Adam Partridge. Charismatic TV auctioneer Adam is one of the UK's best known valuers of Antiques and Fine Art, so we were thrilled that he agreed to take time out of his exceptionally busy schedule to entertain us.
Guests were treated to a delicious two course lunch with tea or coffee, followed by a fascinating insight into Adam's life and career. For many years, Adam has appeared as an antiques expert and auctioneer on numerous antiques television programmes including Flog It!, Bargain Hunt, Dickinson's Real Deal and Cash In the Attic. As well as regaling heartwarming and amusing stories about changing the lives of ordinary people by uncovering valuable treasures that were assumed to be worthless, Adam kindly valued guests' antiques (though sadly found nothing of any real value in the process), answered tons of questions and has even offered to visit the homes of our supporters for follow up valuations of items that were too big and heavy to take to lunch!
We're very grateful that Adam kindly agreed to take time out of his exceptionally busy schedule to attend our ladies lunch at The Lord Binning gastropub in Kelsall, which has raised a wonderful £2,000.
Later this year on Thursday 25th September, we're hosting another ladies event in Nunsmere Hall Hotel's stunning marquee. It's set to be a busy and bustling occasion with live entertainment, a selection of luxury stalls to shop from, a sumptuous buffet provided by Nunsmere Hall's talented Chef, demonstrations from Clinique and Saks Hairdressers and to top it all off, a clothes swapping party. All this is just £22, and tickets are on sale now from the Fundraising Office so please call 01606 861733 for tickets and information.
