Happy Days at the CAFT Ladies’ Lunch

Happy Days at the CAFT Ladies’ Lunch

Last month the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT) held their annual Ladies’ Lunch at the Mere Golf Resort, and for the second year running I was glad to give my time for free to capture some images of the day for them.

If you don’t know anything about the charity, visit their website (www.caft.co.uk) to learn about what they do, and why it’s such a good thing to support them.

Having photographed the lunch a year ago I was familiar with the day, well aware that it was packed full and there would be plenty to photograph.  I wasn’t wrong!  The theme this year was the fabulous 50s, with the Mere’s James Braid suite transformed into a (very red!) 50s diner for the day, with stallholders providing shopping before the lunch, along with a hula hoop raffle, and the chance to win a Louis Vuitton prize and Chanel handbag.

Great to see my friends at Ice Cream Dub serving up delicious treats from their ’66 Splittie.

The firemen from Stockton Heath station were on hand to sell raffle tickets, raise money and generally help out.  Great guys.

The Butlers in the Buff were in attendance again.  Funny, but lots of raffle tickets get sold when they’re helping out.

 As I said above,  so much is packed into the day and it really is all in a very good cause.  If you’re interested in attending next year, please contact CAFT via their website.
