Summer Ladies Lunch in Support of the Nadezda Foundation

On Tuesday 5th of June I attended the Summer Ladies Lunch in support of the Nadezda Charitable Foundation. This wonderful organisation aims to help vulnerable children in Russia, by providing medical help to those with illness and disabilities, as well as financial support for gifted children.

I feel so lucky to have been on the Committee of dedicated women, including founder Nadezda Trokhan-Abela, who made this wonderful event come to life at Morton's Club in Mayfair! I was responsible, with the rest of the committee, for organising prizes and sponsors for the event, as well as selling tickets and promoting this worthy cause.

We couldn't have achieved this without the support of our main partner, Moussaieff Jewellery, who also donated an amazing brooch for one of our prizes! We are so thankful for their support and that of all our other sponsors. We also had some great prized donated by Dragons of Walton Street, S Dress Fashion, Lily Advisory, Marina Sandoval, James Bignel Photography, East India Company, Amishi London and Butterfly Domes by Charlotte Proudlove.

This fantastic linocut Trying on Hats, was kindly donated by artist Anita Klein through Gallery Elena Shchukina.

The event was well attended with Tamara Beckwith, Marie Riboud-Seydoux, Ewa Kozieja, Aneta Gunn, Iza Minkiewicz and Evekyne Genta supporting our cause annd having fun. All the ladies who attended were lucky enough to walk away with fantastic goodie bags supplied by Amouage, who are an international luxury fragrance brand and Spring Green London, who create plant based foods for daily delivery.

Not only did we have great fun on the day but also we raised a total of £29,120.00 for the Foundation (that's 2,500,000 Roubles!) This money will greatly help the foundation continue with the invaluable work it does and the support it offers to so many children. Thank you to everyone who attended and supported this great cause!

 The raffle was great fun!
