A great review of the Chloe James Fashion Show Fundraiser

Hi All,

A great review of the Chloe James Charity Fashion show here http://stateofadress.com/chloe-james-catwalk-show/ ! The night went so very well and raised an amazing £1500 to which the lovely Annie Brewster our former Mayor added an additional £1000 which is simply fantastic!

We are so very grateful to all those who took part, bought a raffle ticket, to the lovely ladies at Chloe James Lifestyle who worked so hard to put this together for us and of course to Annie Brewster who not only modelled on the night but also contributed such a generous amount to the total too.

St Albans people we salute you and on behalf of all those we support, Thank you !!

More Great News For the Crescent Dragons Apprentice 2015

Dear all,

We are very pleased to announce that we are taking part in the Dragons Apprentice scheme organised by the Centre for Voluntary Services in St Albans, and have been partnered with a team of apprentices from St Columbas College in St Albans, their Dragon mentor will be from St Albans Solicitors Brethertons Law.

The aim of the scheme is that the apprentices take a seed capital of £100 and turn this into £1000 or more for their partnered charity through organising a series of events or investing in or selling items to achieve their goal. It aims to teach students business skills and promote effective teamwork. They will be competing with teams from other schools in the area to reach their goal and there will be an awards ceremony at the University of Hertfordshire in March 2015 where the teams will present their achievements and a winner selected based on a number of criteria.

More on this great project here http://www.dragonsapprenticechallenge.com/

We are absolutely delighted to be involved and are very much looking forward to working with the students and their allocated business “Dragon” from Breverton Law solicitors.
