La Lumiére Initiative Charity Night at Hedworth Hall South Shields

Friday 1st October I took part as a stall holder in a charity event organised by Kerry Highmoor.

In total the even raised £650 for the charity it was a superb evening. The charity in question was La Lumiere Initiative.

La Lumiére works to help some of the poorest countries in the world, supporting education and training, water and health projects, and in particular recognises the urgency of providing communities with clean accessible water and public latrines.

A representative from the charity spoke in the evening about how this money was going to be spent of funding education projects

La Lumiére Initiative was established in 2006 and focuses on four countries in Africa: Togo, Benin, Malawi and Zimbabwe.

The disco was pumping and the live singer was great… I particularly enjoyed it when a couple took to the floor and gave us all a beautiful demo of ballroom dancing.

Other creative stall holders included Sally Ashurst’s handmade resin jewellery; sea glass jewellery made from natural sea tumbled glass which is collected by the artisan and her family fat local beaches such as South Shields, Whitely Bay and Seaham; and fabulous handmade cosmetics by Hannah from Durham.

I was really pleased with how my stall looked but unfortunately the photos saved as a picture message and I cant put them up on the computer. I donated a set of eight of my cards for the raffle (r.r.p £20). I wish all markets were as warm and that we always had such good entertainment.
