MORE THAN £2,000 was raised for local charities at the annual Swindon Ladies’ Luncheon

Mayor of Swindon, Cllr Ray Ballman, was among a packed gathering of over 100 women at Bushwackers in Fleet Street for the lavish three course lunch.

Guests heard a fascinating talk from Philip Weeks, a world renowned expert on natural medicine, a master herbalist and acupuncturist who, in his talk, described the ancient Chinese art of Face Reading – and how a face can tell a thousand words!

Former editor of the Swindon Advertiser, Dave King, talked about autism in the county and the introduction earlier this year of an autism alert card in conjunction with Wiltshire Police.

This was the second staging of the ladies’ luncheon and organiser, Sara Tye, from redheadPR, said:

“We sold out very quickly and everyone had a magnificent time at this year’s Ladies Luncheon. The day went fantastically! There was a delicious 3 course meal and the service from the staff at Bushwackers was incredible and The event was a spectacular success."

Among the charities benefiting from the event which was held on Friday, June 17th, are Christ Church in Old Town, the Willows Counselling Service and the Swindon branch of the National Autistic Society. A donation was also made to the Mayor’s Charity Appeal.

London Fashion Week - Bryce Aime

On Saturday 19th February, Camitz Sparkling Vodka provided Camitz Sparkling Woo Woos for Bryce Aime’s A/W 2011 fashion show after-party, held in the Amarillo Suite of The May Fair Hotel.

This season Bryce Aime has returned to his signature roots and once again created a collection that truly reflects his individual style, focusing on a strong, modern look with distinctive and unique graphic prints. The inspiration behind his A/W 2011 collection revolves around the militaristic features of an army barracks. An array of structure, classic tailoring and androgynous silhouettes ensures the authoritative, edgy theme remains pivotal throughout.

Lavish refreshments in the form of Camitz Sparkling Vodka Woo Woo cocktails were provided at the party.

Amongst the guests was the designer himself, Bryce Aime, Amir Layouni from Christian Dior and many up and coming designers, all of whom were seen enjoying the luxurious 100% all natural and refreshing Camitz Sparkling Vodka.

Pattaya Orphanage Thailand

Today we had a wonderful experience we visited the Pattaya Orphanage.

We were shown around by Alun Evans a young man who has decided to use his gap year to volunteer and help children. There are nearly 200 children at the Pattaya Orphange and each one has a little personality and individual needs. The staff managed by Khun Toy work 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to meet the needs of the children who might have been left on the street or worse.

There is a wonderful caring atmosphere which is felt the moment you walk through the door. There is a deaf school within the facility where not only the children’s welfare is looked after but they are also taught sign language. There is no sign language in Thailand – they use the American system.

The Pattaya Orphanage has been in existence for 36 years and a lot of the original children have gone on to get degrees and move around the world.

Long must this work continue.
