Flower Design Demonstration for Lytham St Annes Inner Wheel's Overseas Charity Event

This really was a very special evening organised by Jennifer, Sue and the wonderful ladies of Lytham St Annes Inner Wheel, the plan was to raise as much as possible for the club's overseas charities particularly their activities in Tanzania.
Some of the lovely audience arrived very early and to secure their front row positions with a very English (and perhap a little German too) tradition of placing their coats, bags and umbrellas across the chairs they wished to reserve.And there they are in position
We had a full house which was very good news and The Inner Wheel managed to raise £900.00 for Village Aid plus a further £200.00 for the Flower Design Charities - Trinity Hospice & Blackpool Fylde & Wyre Society for the Blind, so many thanks for your generosity ladies of the Inner Wheel we really appreciate it as do our nominated charities

It was lovely to see so many familiar faces and thanks to all of them for their continued support of Flower Design, we are nothing without our much cherished and respected customersThis was the first night of my new hair cut Jason thinks I should join the cast of "Dumb & Dumber"
