Snaps taken by Sylvia at “Just Because It’s 2011″
Our Charity Hafla on Saturday 15th January 2011 was simply sensational!
There are so many things I could say about this event.. and some things difficult to verbalise.. what I will say is that it meant a lot to a lot of people.
It was exactly the friendly and chilled out ‘old school’ vibe I’d hoped for as I set about organising it just before Christmas. It was delightful for us to have so many friends there, both familiar and new faces. Our buffet, I’m sure you’ll agree, was something to be relished, there was everything there and I mean EVERYTHING! Homemade hummus, sweet chilli dip, flat bread, sundried tomato rolls, tzatziki, bread sticks and there were sausage rolls, chicken wings, turkish delight, biscuits, tiramisu, tortillas, dates, prawns, cakes you name it, it was there. There’s something so naturally satisfying about sharing food together, don’t you think!
We considered our achievements & challenges and those of others as we welcomed in a new year together..
We enjoyed gorgeous henna artistry from the very talented HANNAS HENNA
and were inspired throughout the evening by breath taking performances from…
SHIMMER | LAURA DARLING | THE TWISTED TAILS | LARA & RACHEL | BDB
We danced together vivaciously until 1am when the venue closed!! (I heard a rumour that some of us went on to “The Disco Chippy” and continued to dance there although this is yet to be confirmed)
Together we raised an incredible £265 for Just Because
Thank you to everyone for the very special part you played in the evening.
Take pride in yourself, Just Because It’s 2011!
