We would like to say a huge thank you to all who attended LfL's 20th Anniversary Party on Saturday 28th June 2014. It was a fantastic evening of delicious food, wonderful company, and we are hoping to have raised around £5000, so we are extremely grateful for the support.
We would particularly like to thank all the staff at Café Spice Namaste and our two patrons, chefs Cyrus Todiwala and Dan Doherty, who really did blow the guests away with their exquisite and innovative four-course menu and canapés.
We were joined by Sophia Swire, one of the charity's founders, and it was lovely to have her there to thank her for her incredibly hard work during the initial years, and to celebrate everything that has been achieved over the last 20 years. The co-founder, Charlotte Bannister-Parker, left this message:
“I can’t say how incredibly proud I am of Learning for Life for all it has achieved over the last twenty years and for all the young lives it has changed. Thank you to all the staff, trustees and advisers ..past and present for making this possible through their hard work and dedication to the vision that Sophia and I had when we founded the charity. As LFL goes from strength to straight it could not be in better hands. Enjoy tonight and I look forward to continuing to support and work with LFL for years to come. All love and admiration, Charlotte”.
We hope that those who attended enjoyed themselves and we look forward to seeing you again, along with those who could not make it, at our future events.
