On 24th November, we held our first Mistletoe Ball for the Lily Pad Appeal, kicking off the Festive Season in style! 140 guests enjoyed a fabulous 4 course dinner with Bucks Fizz reception and all-inclusive drinks at the Aerodrome Hallmark Hotel on the Purley Way and then danced the night away to DJ Qwayne. The Silent Auction boasted an array of fantastic items, including a weekend at a luxury cottage in the Cotswolds, a round of golf at the stunning Surrey National Golf Course, a three course dinner for six cooked in the lucky winners home by Dawn Hartwell, Afternoon Tea at the Aerodrome Hotel, and a beautiful painting by local artist Kobie Dams, who also treated us to an exhibition of her work during the evening. A huge thank you to everyone who donated prizes for the evening. A grand total of £7,000 was raised and a wonderful festive time was had by all.
