A Fantastic Fashion Show Night !

Thursday night was a sell out success ! The fashion show held by Chloe James Lifestyle for our benefit was hugely popular! We are so grateful to Donna and Maria from the lovely shop in the High Street, the Cote Brasserie also in St Albans High Street, and The Salon St Albans for all the hard work that went into making the night a great success. We even had Annie Brewster, our Mayor from 2013/14, modelling some of the lovely outfits.

The raffle will be drawn on Monday, so for those of you who still would like a ticket please call the store on 01727843431, or call in at 12 the High Street this weekend, open from 9.30 to 6pm Saturday and 11 to 5pm Sunday. Lots of great prizes including a £200 makeover at The Salon St Albans!

A great review of the evening by someone who was there on the night can be found here http://stateofadress.com/chloe-james-catwalk-show/ Lots of lovely photos included, will post more when we have some too.

Huge thanks from all of us to all of you who participated in the evening, or bought a raffle ticket, we really do appreciate your support, it does make a world of difference to us and allows us to keep doing our vital work.

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.
