A huge thank you to the Bingham, on Richmond riverside, for hosting 'Love Lunch' on 16th March in aid of The Victoria Foundation. Guests enjoyed bubbles in the cocktail bar before a delicious two course lunch in the stunning dining room. The highlight of the event was Mrs Ruth Trinder, the owner of the boutique hotel, in conversation with Linda Duberley, TVF Ambassador and Editor of RiverTribe. Guests were inspired by Ruth’s story of how she created the hotel through great determination and by overcoming many challenges along the way. Her road to success continues to be an interesting and fulfilling one as she takes on another challenging role of President of Richmond Rotary Club
Guests had the opportunity to win fabulous prizes in raffle and over £300 was raised which will help to provide vital mobility aids for children. Jane Curzon, representing Strathmore School in Petersham, explained to guests just how The Victoria Foundation is helping to transform the lives of the children attending the school through funding specialist mobility aids.
Lorna Votier, Development Director of The Victoria Foundation, said ‘Events like “Love Lunch’ are so important to The Victoria Foundation as they raise vital funds which help to ensure that the charity can go on providing medical equipment and support to those in great need in the local and wider community. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Bingham for its ongoing generous support of The Victoria Foundation, Annie Armitage Photographer and Lou Tassell of Optimal Vitality for generously donating such fabulous prizes for the raffle. Congratulations to those lucky winners and a big thank you to all of you for attending today. I very much hope you have enjoyed ‘Love Lunch’ and you will attend the next event in June – an invitation will be forwarded to you over the coming weeks.”
‘Love Lunch’ will return in June – please email Lorna Votier, at The Victoria Foundation, if you would like to receive an invitation.
