Magical Snowflake Ball

On 12 November 2016 HSWD launched their Snowflake Appeal by holding a magical Snowflake Ball at Athelhampton House.

The evening was a sellout with 127 attendees dressed in posh frocks and black tie. Reception drinks where provided in the stunning Great Hall in Athelhampton House along with the opportunity to have a look around a section of the house - the library, bedroom, Marevna art exhibition and cellar - enchanting and stunning.

Guests were then seated in the Coach House Restaurant for a delicious four course meal.

Entertainment was provided by an every ticket wins raffle - with amazing prizes from generous local shops and businesses along with an auction, again with some truly amazing lots - a stay at Greenwood Grange Dorset, a stay at The Park Cornwall, a Neff oven from Kitchen Style, a Dorset Hamper from the Fridge sponsored by Pengilly's Solicitors, a game of golf from Game Down Golf Club and vouchers from Boden and Medusa Apothecary - THANK YOU SO MUCH! Finally guests danced the evening away to the wonderful sounds from the Saxuality duet.

Thank you to those who attended and also a huge thank you to the organisers - Helen, Camilla and Nicola.
