The Lesley Balls Beauty Day
Once again it was my pleasure to organise this event at Mosimann’s which turned out to be a most enjoyable lunch and successful day. Angela Rippon, our hard-working President, hosted the occasion in her usual inimitable style and later conducted the auction with great charm. I managed to persuade a number of companies who supply beauty products to take a table and demonstrate their various goods. There were other tables where hats, jewellery, jackets and handbags were displayed which were very popular and created great interest.
Our speaker, Nikki Hambleton-Jones, who presented Channel 4’s, 10 years Younger, gave a very informative talk on what ladies should wear on different occasions, advising on style, colour etc.
Eve Pollard also spoke and brought along her clothing range which was modelled by Lady Taverners - Susie Burrows, Marilyn Fry, Pricilla Sharp, Jean Dorman and Helen Robinson who showed flair in this area which we had not suspected. They also wore hats and jackets from the companies who were exhibiting.
As usual, Mosimann’s excelled themselves with a delicious menu which was heartily enjoyed by everyone. The total money raised was £3,800.00 which, when you consider the modest number of people who attended, was a marvellous result.
