We must say a huge thank you to everyone who came last night, or bought a raffle ticket, donated a prize, provided services for the models or generally gave up their time to help out. The most important thanks go to the staff, models, and customers, of Chloe James Lifestyle and the Cote Brasserie for all of the hard work that went into organising the event and inviting us to participate.
