Ladies Lunch Success!!
On Thursday 28th September 2017, local charity Creating Adventures hosted a wonderful afternoon in the delightful surroundings of Mere Court Hotel in Knutsford for a Ladies Lunch to remember.
Guests were greeted with bubbles on arrival in the Morrocan styled conservatory room, followed by a delicious 2 course lunch along with the opportunity to shop an array of stalls including Edge Style Boutique and Northern Star Jewellery. The ladies had to take a second look at the afternoon’s entertainment as Mike Andrew wooed the ladies as Robbie Williams, taking on his Swing style during the lunch and stepping up the rhythm throughout the afternoon moving onto Robbie classics such as She’s the One.
Olympic and Commonwealth Athlete Diane Modahl joined in the fun to show her support to both Creating Adventures and as a guest of the charity’s supporters Fairhome Group Ltd.
The guests were overcome with emotion as Anne Jackson, a mum to a 15 year old boy with Autism read ‘Welcome to Holland’ by Emily Perl Kingsley. A piece often used to help parents understand bringing up a child with disabilities. Anne told her story and raised her concerns about how terrified she is of her son getting older because of the lack of services and the many changes and challenges he will face.
A Special Ice Cube Raffle was held which saw the ladies choosing a diamond shaped ice cube containing a raspberry. However one lucky winner found a hidden gem inside the raspberry and won a Georg Jensen Heart Pendant generously donated to the charity by David Robinson Jewellers worth £150.
Thank you to everyone involved in supporting this event. We are delighted with it’s success!
This event will support us in providing a Christmas party for adults with autism and complex needs on Friday 22nd December in Manchester. Christmas isn’t just for kids, but for kids at heart too!
