Ladies Lunches at Lochgreen

Last updated: 11.31am, Tuesday 11th December 2012 by

We have just finished another great week of Ladies Lunches at the beautiful Lochgreen House Hotel.

This annual fundraising event sees 700 ladies, over the course of 6 days, enjoying a first rate lunch at the 5-star Costley and Costley hotel. The fashion parade from Amaison added even more glamour to the wonderful setting.

This year The Cook School Scotland's cookery demonstrations proved very popular as did the floral demonstrations from Catkins Flowers and Enid Reid. But, especially in the run up to Christmas, retail therapy is always popular and this year's exhibitors did not disappoint!

As well as a lovely lunch, a little learning and some exclusive Christmas shopping, the ladies also contributed to our fundraising efforts for Our Space at the Baird Centre. The money raised (over £11,000) will go towards the external landscaping of this fantastic new community resource here at Broadmeadows. The building has large windows and sliding, glazed doors designed to merge the indoor and outdoor space so we need to make sure the garden is as spectacular as the Baird Centre itself.

The external space is an integral part of Our Space: there will be dementia friendly areas, raised planters for gardeners who use wheelchairs, resilient rubber matting to allow movement and dance to spill outside, and many other features which will add to the therapeutic environment and, well, just make it a great place to be!
