On Sunday July 1st, Bigday set out to Godmanchester for a lunch time charity event. The sun was shining, which glistened off the river at Island Hall (http://www.islandhall.com/), a perfect setting for a great cause.
The luncheon was to raise funds for a Cambridgeshire charity called MAGPAS. The Mid Anglia General Practitioner Accident Service (MAGPAS) saves lives day and night for people who are in accidents. The team provides On-scene medical support, On-line medical support, special incident medical support and major incident medical support. So a very deserving charity indeed!
This event was also special for another reason as it was a fashion day, celebrating the British fashion designer… introducing the wonderful, fantastic and very talented Zandra Rhodes! Displaying a collection of the lovely Lady Linda Vane Percy of Island Halls Zandra Rhode dresses and accessories. Including an amazing wedding dress which Zandra designed for her. The collection consisted mainly of 70s gown, all in a very bold print which was absolutely fantastic!
Now, on to the meal! A three course Luncheon is in order for this excellent cause!
Starters consisted of rose of cantaloupe melon, prosciutto and summer berries
Mains was fillet of salmon, dauphinoise and seasonal vegetables
Red pepper Wellington, dauphnoise and seasonal vegetables
Dessert was a trio of delightful desserts.
After the meal, Zandra Rhodes very kindly auctioned off a bag and an apron, signed with a personalized message from her, to raise money for MAGPAS. They raised £6000 that day, which has potentially saved 10 lives! So a very well done to everyone who attended!
Huge thanks go out to Christopher and Lady Linda Vane Percy of Island Hall for the amazing accommodation and also to Grace Vane Percy for organizing this very deserving charity event. Also huge thanks go out to Zandra Rhodes!
