Lady Garden Gala at Claridge’s

7th December 2017

On Tuesday 28th November 2017, London’s most influential women gathered to raise vital funds for the Gynaecological Cancer Fund and Cancer Research UK. 

Hosts for the evening were Sarah, Duchess of York (Honarary Chairwoman), Sung-Joo Kim, Tania Bryer, Trinny Woodall, June Sarpong, Nadja Swarovski and Gynaecological Cancer Fund Committee members Jenny Halpern-Prince and Tamara Beckwith-Veroni. Other Committee members attending were Mika Simmons, Kate Percival and Chloe Delevingne.

Among guests were Heather Kerzner, Trinny Woodall, Gemma Arterton, Victoria Pendleton, Suki Waterhouse, Jodie Kid, Yasmin Le Bon, Yana Peel and Samantha Cameron.

With sponsorship from MCM and support from Swarovski and SHOW Beauty, guests enjoyed Lauren Perrier Champagne and watched a brilliant performance by Melanie C while raising money to help fight the war against gynaecological cancer. A special shout out to Trinny Woodall and June Sarpong who hosted the quiz and Simon Du Pury for his invaluable skills as an auctioneer.

The top prizes auctioned were a Chanel-sponsored trip to Paris, a private dinner for 12 at Maison Assouline, a beautiful print by David Yarrow, and a money-can’t-buy Chelsea football package!

SHOW Beauty and TRINNY LONDON were on hand to pamper guests with complimentary blow dries and make-overs at a pop-up suite in Claridge’s throughout the afternoon.

A special thanks goes to Kate Percival and Grace Belgravia for not only providing us with a most entertaining photo booth on the night, but for their continuous support throughout the year.

The funds raised will be split between the Gynaecological Cancer Fund and Cancer Research UK to fund vital research into gynaecological cancers.
