On Thursday 28 September, 2023, a glamorous Boutique Lunch at Gusto Italian Restaurant in Cheadle Hulme raised an impressive £2,700 for Francis House Children’s Hospice. The event was sponsored by Sinclair Law and supported by ladies’ fashion retailer Flair Boutique UK.
Lucy Hart, director of Sinclair Law based in Wilmslow, said: “Francis House is an amazing charity, and we were proud to be sponsors of the Boutique Lunch. A fabulous afternoon was experienced by all in support of this incredible charity.”
The event featured a variety of stalls, showcasing chocolates, handbags, fashion, skincare, jewellery, and home fragrances. Guests also enjoyed a two-course lunch and fashion show of new season styles by Flair Boutique UK, as well as music and entertainment from singer Andrew Alty.
Victoria Young, a guest at the event, said: “I had a fantastic afternoon catching up with networking colleagues and raising money for such a worthy cause. It was a lovely afternoon with beautiful food and flowing drinks and even had chance to do a little retail therapy from the stalls that were showcasing their lovely items – a great afternoon and highly recommend, we can’t wait for the next one.”
Raffle prizes included a handbag, beauty hamper, chocolate hamper and a diamond necklace donated by Beaverbrooks.
Lucy Thompson, events manager of Francis House, commented: “A big thank you to all the ladies that came along and supported our Boutique Lunch. The atmosphere was great, and everyone was so generous with their donations.’’
