Combining a hair demonstration called “Artisan” by the team of stylists from the salon with a party to celebrate five years in business in Stoke Newington, the event also featured live music from The Cedars, Morning Bride, Balabustah and Justine Armatage of The Cesarians, with very special guests The Little Theatre of Dolls and their weird and wonderful puppet show.
INQUEST is grateful to Henrietta for her considerable efforts, and congratulate her on completing a gruelling physical challenge in our behalf, which has raised over £1,300 already.
Tables sold out within a couple of days and generous donations of prizes were raised by Doughty Street chambers, Christian Khan and Bindmans. The resounding winners of the night were a team from Tooks Court chambers, and the event was great fun for all involved with everyone entering to the competitive spirit of the evening.
Table sales, the raffle and a generous top up from HJA brought the total raised for the evening to £2,186. This was a significant contribution to INQUEST at a time when were struggling to raise the funding we need to maintain our vital service to bereaved families. A second quiz evening in December 2010 raised a further £1,366 for INQUEST.
Thanks are due to Anna Thwaites and the HJA team for organising both events, the donors and participants for their generosity and support. A great spin off from this enjoyable evening is the other firms and chambers have been moved to do something to support our cause, so if you have ideas please Contact us.
