Garden House Hospice Twilight Ball 2014

March 17, 2014

I was lucky enough to have been invited to photograph the Garden House Hospice Twilight Ball 2014, which was held at the gorgeous Priory Barn in Little Wymondley, Herts on Saturday 15 March 2014.

 

What an absolutely brilliant evening, all that planning and organising by the wonderful team at Garden House comes down to one night, a night that is nerve-wracking in the build up but I was full of confidence that we would have a success on our hands.  The Garden House Hospice is a fabulous local charity that offers hospice care and support services to patients diagnosed with a terminal illness, and their families.

 

So we arrived for 6pm to be able to get into the barn to start setting up the pop-up studio area in a small stall close to the entrance.   With room just enough for a 2m wide backdrop, everyone had to get up close and personal for their photos!  Taking photos of guests as they arrived and during the evening, we raised a grand sum of £460 for the photos purchased on the night, and a whopping 90% of this was donated to the charity.

 

There was also a raffle and an auction hosted by Gareth Wesley, and which included Ian Poulter's signed polo shirt, Manchester United team signed framed print, 2 signed football shirts, a gorgeous pendant necklace, golf membership, a photo shoot (no not one of mine on this occasion), helicopter ride, and other fabulous prizes.

 

Lee Smith, Magician was amazing!  He can turn hand-drawn £5 notes into real £5 notes in front of your eyes - I did ask if he could show me how to do that for £20 notes, but he just wouldn't give up his secrets!

 

Guests can also download further images with royalty-free personal use via the online gallery client access page (Access Code was provided to guests on the night), with 25% of the price being donated to Garden House.  If you do not have the Access Code, please contact me, or Karen Rabjohn or Tina Fletcher.  Thankyou

Funds raised from the evening total in excess of £9,000!  

"We want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who helped make the Twilight Ball such a success.The evening was sponsored by many local businesses and restaurants who gave raffle/auction prizes and donations. The generosity and support of  the community and our guests has been overwhelming, raising over £9,000 for the charity"  Tina Fletcher
