Thanks to everyone who attended our ‘Grand dejeuner’ at the Crosshill gallery we raised £600! A lovely afternoon was had by all, tea was sipped in vintage china, delicious sandwiches from the Bakery munched on whilst classical musicians filled the air with beautiful music.
The event as well as being a fundraiser for Shelter NI was also part of the ‘Big lunch’ network of events that have been occurring across the UK bringing neighbours together for food and friendship.
The wonderful Diona Doherty, as featured on Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model compered our auction and got the bidding going enthusiastically.
Thanks to our sponsors for our fantastic auction prizes, The Crosshill Gallery who both hosted the event and donated a glassware piece by Edel Taggart, Posh Nosh catering who donated a crate of wine, Titanic Belfast who donated a family ticket, The Lagan boat company who donated 2 family Titanic boat trips, The Ulster Orchestra who donated two family tickets to their annual Christmas performance of the Snowman and Newforge Therapies who donated an Aromatherapy voucher.
