A Festive & Heartwarming End to the Year!

A Festive & Heartwarming End to the Year!

The spirit of giving was alive and well at our Christmas Fundraiser, held on the 13th of December at Novotel London West. We were delighted to host the event in collaboration with H&F Giving to raise funds for their incredible Christmas Campaign. 

The room was filled with festive cheer, joyful vibes and a remarkable turnout of clients and friends who enjoyed the evening together and helped us reach our fundraising goal for H&F Giving.

We were delighted to be joined by Dr Chaw-Su Kyi, award-winning Orthodontist from West London Orthodontist Cosmetic Dental Studios who is part of the Development Committee of H&F Giving, and a member of Networking.London. Dr Kyi conveyed the immense appreciation held for the attendees who gave generously throughout the night to ensure that our elderly neighbours in the Hammersmith & Fulham borough don’t miss out on experiencing the joy and light of the holiday season. 

The H&F Giving Christmas Day Lunch brings together over 500 elderly and vulnerable people within Hammersmith & Fulham together for a festive meal full of fun, laughter and friendship. A portion of every ticket sold on the night, as well as the proceeds from our exciting raffle contributed to a ticket for our older H&F neighbours to attend the lunch, also held at Novotel London West!

After a spirited game of Heads & Tails, with questions based the Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, our guests took part in a raffle which was generously donated by local businesses. Thank you to all who contributed, we hope the winners enjoy the incredible prizes! 

A true highlight of the evening was the heartwarming and joyous rendition of the ‘12 Days of Christmas’, led by our MC, Andrew Quick and Eva Luitsz, Networking.London Committee Member. It was delightful to see all 12 tables of guests take part in joyously singing along, with the enthusiasm becoming more and more infectious.
