3rd Annual Ladies’ Lunch at Fortnum and Mason

16 December 2016

On Thursday 29th September 2016 London’s most influential women gathered for the third annual Ladies’ Lunch at the iconic Fortnum & Mason Piccadilly, who have, once again, generously sponsored the event.  Charlotte Dellal, Tania Bryer, Calgary Avansino and Fabiana Ecclestone and Masha Hanson all joined committee members Tamara Beckwith Veroni, Jenny Halpern Prince, Mika Simmons, Josephine Daniel and Astrid Harbord for the charity lunch.

The hugely successful auction returned with donations from sought-after handbag designers, including a Valentino Rock Stud, a Versace Fluorescent Camo and a Runway Chanel piece.  A money-can’t-buy Gucci auction lot was also on offer, along with a ME package including a stay at the luxurious VIVAMAYR retreat in Austria.

Guests heard from inspiring patient Janey who is being treated at The Royal Marsden under Dr Banerjee who said, “everything you  give today will support Dr Banerjee’s research and help women, like me, live for longer and have a better quality of life.”

The event was also supported by Gabriela Peacock’s health and wellbeing brand, GP Nutrition.  Guests were welcomed with a flower press wall designed by Nikki Tibbles’ Wild At Heart and guests dined in Fortnum’s Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon.  This year’s Lady Garden hoodies designed by artist and Blackscore designer, Simeon Farrar were also on sale as Gynaecological Cancer Awareness month came to a close.
