Ayesha’s 21st Birthday Charity Ball!

On Saturday 26th August it was my late daughter’s 21st Birthday so to mark the occassion I held a Charity Ball at Quy Mill Hotel. There were 76 friends and family and it was a sit down dinner follwed by an Auction of Promises and a Raffle and finishing off the evening with a disco.


The room looked wonderful with Sunflowers and White Roses and Ballooons on each table-those of you that remember Ayesha would know of her love of Sunflowers! Thank you Barnwell Florists!

There was also a very clever Magician called Dean who amaized guests with his fast ‘slight of hand’ with card tricks at the tables-there was much laughter and gasps of delight!

My dear God Father-Graham, a retired Master of Ceremonies dusted off his Red Suit to do the honours of keeping the evening on track for me-so a big Thank you to him!

I am sure Ayesha would have approved, it was such a happy and memorable eveing and the most wonderful and heart touching part for me was it raised £3,500 for COPARS!-a charity very close to Ayesha’s heart.
