I was approached a while ago by a long time client to see if I would be interested in sponsoring the inaugural Friends of Tresillian
Tea Party. I jumped at the opportunity as I think it's such a fabulous organisation and was interested that up until now they have had no outside fundraising. Many of my friends and clients have used the Tresillian network either in residence or on the phone in the middle of the night so I know what a support they are.
The Tea Party was a fabulous affair with Wedgewood as a sponsor it was very elegant, and the grounds of the Tresillian house in Wollstonecraft are lovely for a garden party. The only down side to the beautiful sunshine we received on the day was that is was 39 degrees and we were all melting. As you can see the event was supported but a range of people from mothers of young babies who have recently used Tresillian services, to grandmothers, mothers of older children and nurses.
The party was to start awareness of a new group that Sue Robson is looking to set up called Friends of Tresillian to arrange a couple of similar events a year to provide fundraising for Tresillian. If you would like to know more about the organising and the fundraising please just drop me a note on our "Contact Us"
page and I'll put you in touch with Sue to talk further.
