Beauty Banks joins our army of supporters

A huge thank you to the gorgeous people at Beauty Banks and all the generous supporters who donate to them. We have just taken delivery of a mountain of goodies ranging from every day hygiene essentials to stacks of high-end skincare and make up.

The essentials will be perfect for the hampers our guests take away on Christmas Day and the skincare and make up will make lovely stocking fillers. Thank you Beauty Banks!

Welcome on board for the second year – St Margaret’s Fair

We are delighted to announce that for the second year running we have the support of the wonderful St. Margaret’s Fair.

Their donation last year helped make sure that all the guests were taken safely to and from the venue by taxi. We’re thrilled that they have come on board as partners again this year to ensure the same.

The new partnership with Big Yellow – which has high profile, easy–to–access locations across the UK -will stretch into 2018 as well so giving us a much better chance of repeating out incredible event next year too.
