I've been photographing events for the Garden House Hospice for over four years now, from Fun Runs and team-building events like It's A Knockout, to Christmas Concerts and Lights of Life.
For the past three years, I have also covered their Twilight Ball, (with the help of my very good friend, Jackie who I couldn't do without), held at The Priory Barn in Wymondley (a unique venue set in rural Hertfordshire) - a fabulous evening organised by the Committee for the Corporate Partnerships that work closely with the Hospice to help raise not only awareness of the amazing work they do, but also help raise essential funds for the Hospice to continue providing care and support services to those diagnosed with a lifel limiting illness, and their families.
The Ball has always been a great evening of lovely people, food, wine, dancing, and fun! This year was no exception, with 152 attending for a tasty 3-course meal, followed by coffee & mints, a raffle & auction hosted by DJ Gareth Wesley, round-the-table magic with Lee Smith Magician, and mounted prints being sold on the night - at the last count the grand total raised for the Hospice had surpassed a whopping £12,000!
Please have a look at the gallery of images from the evening at THE GALLERY HERE
For all photos purchased on the night, the digital files can be downloaded free of charge. All other images from the evening can be downloaded for just £5, with proceeds of sales being donated to the Hospice - so please be generous and help raise even more vital funds for this amazing Charity.
Some of the local companies at this year's Ball include Lion Press, LV=, Phillips Digital Print, Barclays, FB Chain, City Remedial, Wine Society, and Odyssey.
