A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Shakespeare’s Underglobe

Eloise were delighted to be in attendance at ‘The Pink Ribbon Foundation’s‘,  Midsummer Night’s Dream themed fundraiser ball on October 4th this year. Despite a train strike which made it very difficult for everyone travelling in, the event went ahead at the spectacular Shakespeare’s Under-globe on the banks of the river Thames.  Celebrating 23 years of The Pink Ribbon Foundation the event raised money for those affected by breast cancer and was a truly magical evening complete with fairies, a harp player and a stunning aerial artist.  The event was sponsored by a number of supporters including RBC Brewin Dolphin, Ocean Spray and Vendula London and hosted by Smooth radio presenter Angie Greaves whose soulful voice was the perfect backdrop to the evening.

The evening kicked off with a fabulous prosecco reception, a glass or two of which was poured by the incredibly talented aerial artist, (who delighted us later in the evening with a breath-taking display on ceiling suspended ribbons.) After the reception we moved onto a delicious three course meal with entertainment from the likes of Kerry Ellis and Jamie Hannah who donated their time to the event in support of breast cancer awareness month. The evening also included a silent auction to raise funds for the cause. A huge congratulations to The Pink Ribbon Foundation for putting on such a fabulous evening.

Raising Funds For Breast Cancer Support

The Pink Ribbon Foundation is a grant making trust with a mission to fund projects and provide financial support to UK charities which relieve the needs of people who are suffering from, have been affected by breast cancer, or who work to advance the understanding of breast cancer and its early detection and treatment. There are a large number of such charities in the UK, each as deserving as the next. Many of the charities supported are the smaller ones, which operate on a shoestring.  (info taken directly from )

We all had a wonderful time, thanks again to The Pink ribbon Foundation and all the sponsors that made the evening possible. We look forward to hearing how much it raised for charity in due course.
