Peter and Madeline March 12th 2016
Elmley Castle Lodge, Ladies Night, Chateau Impney, Droitwich Spa
A magnificent night at the very impressive Chateau Impney Hotel, for our Master Peter and his Wife Madeline to host a most successful Ladies Evening. The event which took place within the majestic ballroom of the original Chateau building was much enjoyed by everyone. An excellent meal of the highest quality followed by dancing until carriages at Midnight.
An excellent toast to the ladies proposed by W Bro Mike Dykes was well received and which, coupled with an equally elegant response from Madeline, drew very warm applause before the distribution of the ladies gifts.
W Bro Peter Foulds, on behalf of Madeline, highlighted some of the aims and achievement of “Winston Wish” a children’s bereavement charity which Madeline had chosen as the beneficiary of tonight’s charity appeal.
Peters appeal was most successful, a table collection raised £1,500.
The recent Emley Castle Lodge Carol Concert raised welcome and much-needed funding for St Marys School Music Section, whilst enabling the Lodge to further support the Evesham Brain Injury unit based at the College in Cheltenham Road.
Our picture shows Richard Kendrick presenting members of the school choir with a cheque for £120 in appreciation of the excellent singing which always proves a huge hit with those attending the carol concert.
A further cheque for £320 has been presented to the Brain Injury Unit bringing the total assistance given to this most worthy cause to more than £2,000 in the current year.
As always the lodge very much appreciates the never-ending work put in by Richard and Sandra Kendrick in the Kitchen and to John Icke for all the organisation and running of the event. Not forgetting those who performed after the choir to entertain us whilst the children enjoyed their lunch snacks before returning to school.
