THE LUCY RAYNER FOUNDATION - LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT

The Lucy Rayner “Secret Garden Gala Dinner 2019”

On Saturday night our special guests stepped through the keyhole, kindly gifted by Harris Carpentry Harris Carpentry Limited (Epsom) into our secret garden; a magical land filled with soft and bouncy grass gifted by Perfectly Green Artificial Grass and hanging ivy. After being greeted by Alice and the Mad Hatter (from Acting Moon Events) who were ready for a picture pose, the Cheshire Cat was on hand to impress with his perfectly formed splits and acrobats whilst guests sipped their welcome bubbles sponsored by Insurancewith

The main room was transformed into an enchanted garden thanks to @reveriesevents filled with the perfect finishing touches of blossom trees, drapes and mystical colours to cast tree-like shadows on the walls.

The large hanging signage with secret gates that were gifted by Raccoon set the perfect scene for our exclusive party among the whimsical woodland.

Framing the blossom tree adorned stage were the hidden gardens and what lay inside was every golf lover and sweet tooth’s dream. A crazy golf course Crazygolf4u to the left and a candy floss machine @petworthdisco to the right kept everyone happy, with them snapping the moment in the fantastic magic mirror afterwards to keep the memory alive Animation Events Ltd

As over 400 guests settled down for their meal our very own local Maggie Cooper set the tone for the evening and filled the air with a variety of classical songs.

Each unique table was set with its very own personalised design created by the talented Flowers by Liz the tree logs gifted by Jake Shepard Arboricultural Services. China pots, flowers, moss and conkers hidden beneath the tea lights gave a realistic and authentic feel.

We welcomed our guests with a secret garden brochure on their place holders, designed by Lorraine Porter from Advance online along with a little gift from us; a silver pin to launch our new refreshed logo gifted by ML Badges & More Ltd

Our acts were in full swing as dinner was served before the clock struck 9pm and our guest speaker Josh Connolly was invited onto the stage. He Spoke from the heart and captivated the entire room with not a sound to be heard - we thank you Josh for delivering your touching story.

Following on from Josh’s emotional speech the great Terry Simms conducted the start of our live auction, raising some fantastic funds for the charity.

With everyone well and truly warmed up DJ Danny (DJ2k) finished the evening with his dance sets. Without fail he started the party with Lucy’s tune (Show me love) blaring through the sound system, with not many able to stay seated! The evening continued with great tunes and not a clear space on the floor to been seen.

Thank you to our main evening sponsors, Reveries Weddings APAC and Maple Parking - without you, Saturday wouldn’t have been possible. We look forward to partnering again in future events.

Looks amazing

The ball was magnificent, as always I come away full of love and awe and appreciation for the Rayner family, for Lucy and her legacy and the ever growing influence and potency of the foundation, making a difference in a real and practical way. And so much beauty last night, not only the people present and the message but all the wonderful touches, the ivy clad entrance, the LOVE flower logo, the magical table 'gardens' with their glass bells, flowers and moss and the conkers hidden beneath the green lights. Another inspirational speech from Josh Connelly, and the list of accomplishments of the foundation, the money raised and the numbers of people helped, the services given, lives changed, hope restored. Happy Birthday Lucy and thank you xx

Such a wonderful night

What an amazing setting, everyone must so proud to display such a wonderful event of this tragic loss, my heart goes out to every one of you. Xx
