What an amazing afternoon was had by everyone who attended our 3rd Ladies Sparkling Charity Afternoon Tea at The Midland Hotel on Saturday 23rd March 2019. A massive thank you to all who has supported this sell out event!
The Princes Ballroom looked so majestic and was buzzing with the sound of over 220 ladies relaxing and enjoying their afternoon, all whilst supporting the work our charity does across Bradford supporting children and young people.
Eve Wellings (pictured above) said, “Today has been full of fun with friends and family. It was fantastic to be able to support an amazing charity that does so much for the community of Bradford”. Eve has seen the work we do first hand as she regularly volunteers at one of our Community Hubs! Well done Eve.
Mitton Group (pictured above) provided support for our added sparkle of prosecco. “As a local Bradford business, it was an honour to sponsor the event and support a local charity doing amazing work across the District” (Sarah Taylor, Mitton Group).
Debenhams once again kindly supported in so many ways including skin care and cosmetic demonstrations and a fabulous fashion show to showcase their latest seasonal trends.
“It is an absolute pleasure to be apart of this One Million Charity event at The Midland for the third year running. Not only is it amazing to see how much the event has grown but also how much this generates footfall back into our store and future bookings. Debenhams Bradford would like to thank Kirsty and Rachel (of OIAM) for asking us to be a part in this and we look forward to what the future holds”. (Fran Smith, Debenhams Bradford).
“It’s been the perfect early Mother’s Day present and a great excuse for all the special women in your life to get together. The highlights have to be the Clinique freebies and the fantastic raffle prizes on offer!” said Danielle Baldwin.
Laura Whittam said, “What a wonderful afternoon! What better way to support such an inspiring charity than with Prosecco and good friends? The atmosphere was warm and relaxed, with fabulous entertainment. We can’t wait for the next one!”.
Yuk Ying Parkin was equally enthusiastic, “What a fabulous afternoon supporting an amazing charity like One In A Million. Afternoon tea, prosecco, spending time with friends, all whilst supporting a good cause – what more could I ask for?!”.
Emma Cummins (pictured far right) said, “It has been such a lovely afternoon catching up with friends and family, whilst also raising awareness and money for such an inspiring charity”.
Deana Misbert (pictured top left) added, “I was so happy to support such a worthwhile cause for the children of Bradford”. Donna Hindle (picture above) said, “It has been a lovely way to spend special time with family and friends”.
“It’s been a great excuse to get together. I’ve had a wonderful time alongside my daughter Anna and best friend Julie. The Princes Ballroom provided a beautiful surrounding to celebrate One In A Million. The afternoon tea was deliciously topped off with complementary Prosecco, thank you! It’s been absolutely fantastic day and the three of us are looking forward to next year’s event already!’. Thank you Alison Pyke (pictured above left) for your kind words.
At the close of a fun and fabulous afternoon, Helen Ludkins (pictured above) paid her compliments, “Congratulations! We had a special afternoon, sisters and daughters together having fun whilst raising money for such a valuable cause – thank you One In A Million”.
