Christmas Fundraiser 2018

On Thursday 18th December, Friends of Attend ABI (fAABI) were pleased to host a Christmas Party, a successful evening that was enjoyed by all attendees. The event was held at fAABI’s Head Office in Cavendish Square, from 1pm until 8pm. The evening was full of activities- we were pleased to host the fundraising raffle, where members of fAABI were given the chance to win one of over 20 prizes, ranging from aprons, clocks, vouchers and hampers to marvellous cakes donated by Café Concerto, as well as a luxury meal at a few of London’s many high-end restaurants, such as Montpeliano, Organic Café and Cote Brasserie. Tickets for the raffle were sold throughout the day, and a respectable £206 was raised from the raffle.

The festivities kicked off with an arts & crafts workshop where attendees were able to design and make their own Christmas cards, were very creative and artistic. The Christmas card workshop was followed by a reception where guests were encouraged to socialise with friends, family and other members of fAABI.

Perhaps the most exciting event of the night was a very special magic performance hosted by Duncan Swan, whose captivating magic left guests in awe, especially as they saw the unique performance from up close. Guests were encouraged to engage with Duncan’s act, leading to a performance full of a mix of laughter, amazing magic and mind-reading.

The Christmas Party ended with a movie where guests were able to sit back, relax and indulge in provided pizza and drinks following Duncan’s exhilarating magic show. Guests enjoyed the movie ‘Ladybird’, which is part of our monthly Movie Night, and where the night came to an end.

Overall, the Christmas Party was an evening full of fun and laughter, and gave all 31 of our guests the opportunity to relax and socialise with family and friends, new or old, before settling in to the holiday period.
