Mid-July saw the return of our Summer Fundraising Garden Party, organised by our chair of Trustees, Sue Roberts. The gardens were looking beautiful on this marvellous evening, which brought guests together to enjoy an evening of food, wine and live music. Our charity auction was the highlight of the evening with Jeremy Thornton, of Biddle and Webb Auctioneers as our pro-bono auctioneer. Our musicians were ‘Wild Clover’, our caterers were ‘Food Fanatics’ and helping Majestic to serve the wine were members of the Calthorpe Residents Society who also helped so enthusiastically with clearing and washing up. Having just launched our new Corporate Sponsorship Scheme we were delighted to welcome our first corporate sponsors to the event, Nicholls Brimble Bhol and Dermoperfection, and also our event sponsors Bira and Quality Solicitors Davisons.

Our thanks to all the individuals, organisations and businesses who have supported this event – we raised a record £13,650 for Martineau Gardens.
