A Day at the Races On June 20th, Greenwoods Hotel & Spa held a day of luxury in order to help raise funds as well as awareness of Lepra. Upon arrival the guests were greeted with a glass of Pimm's and were offered an extensive lunchtime buffet, followed by a selection of afternoon treats such as profiteroles, and tea and cakes later on in the day. Throughout the day, there was live music, coverage of the Ascot races allowing for small bets to be made. As well as this, a luxury raffle was held with proceeds going to Lepra, and also a competition and prize for the best hat on the day. A few members from our Colchester office were in attendance on the day and commented that “the venue was beautifully set up for the event, with a welcoming and fun atmosphere. It was wonderful to talk to guests throughout the day about Lepra and share the importance of our work”. Furthermore, we would like to give a special thank you to Greenwoods Hotel & Spa for choosing Lepra as this year’s charity. And also thank you to Globexpert for being in attendance on the day and aiding with their exciting fundraising silent auction.
