The Latimer Hinks Charity Ball - its over!

The Latimer Hinks Team - that's me, on the right in the purple dress!
After all of the preparation, running around like a headless chicken and the added stress of a bad back the Latimer Hinks Charity Ball was a resounding success. Virtually everything went according to plan - and I have my St Teresa's volunteers and the Latimer Hinks team to thank for that.

We were extremely lucky weather wise. Friday 6th June was a fantastic day, so warm that many of the guests chatted on the terrace until the early hours!

The magicians were brill, the singer Cole Page, very entertaining and the guests turned out in their most splendid suits and glamorous ball gowns.
