A touch of romance, a sprinkle of celebrities, and many kind hearts made for a magical charity Love Ball. 

This Valentine’s, Lady Wimbledon and  Celeb FC – an agency formed by Karin Flower that organises celebrities and influencers to play football and attend events for charities  – organised a Love Ball to help raise money for local charity, Wimbledon Guild who require more funding for carers to look after the elderly suffering from isolation in our borough.

On the menu were beetroot crisps with goat’s cheese, hoison duck with watermelon, venison profiteroles and a tofu, coconut and cashew crumble. For the sweet option there were chocolates filled with passion fruit mousse and coconut jelly made from Jeeva Naturals coconut water. Once again there was a spectacular cake creation custom designed for NC Supper Clubs by Beck’s Bake. All went down perfectly with a pink fizz by Hannibal Brown.

Beautifully romantic flowers by Brian Kirkby decorated the room and a magic mirror by Taylored Events enchanted guests who were able to create and print themed photographs with digital backdrops and props on the night. Along with the mirror, there was a beautiful candy cart offering pick and mix treats.

During the evening, live music was performed by So Sinatra, a Frank Sinatra tribute artist who has performed throughout the UK, Europe and Dubai. His melodious voice set the mood in the room and kept everyone in high spirits – with Lady Wimbledon and Being Mr Brown taking the stage for an old school dance to ‘The Way You Look Tonight.’
