THE TENTH annual Lady Taverners Lunch raised £5,800 at Eastbourne’s Grand Hotel.
Organised by the Kent & East Sussex Lady Taverners, the milestone event was a sell-out success attracting a record number of 208 ladies and businesswomen from the town and surrounding area.
The Lady Taverners is the fundraising arm of the sporting charity and club the Lord’s Taverners. Whilst the Lord’s Taverners is famous for is charitable giving to cricket the ladies’ section focuses on fundraising for specially adapted minibuses and sport and recreation facilities for young people with special needs.
Taverners chair Laura Collins said, “Being the 10th anniversary lunch it was a very special event and once again combined good food, company, hospitality and friendship. From small beginnings we are very pleased to have made our seaside lunch at the Grand Hotel a regular event in our fundraising calendar and this year’s event was a huge success and the money raised will go a very long way to supporting our aims.”
