Having a Ball

Jenny and Emma hosted a table of friends and clients at this year’s Valentine’s Ball in support of The Because of Jenna Trust, a registered charity dedicated to easing the suffering of severely brain-injured children in Barbados; www.becauseofjenna.org.‎ A fabulous evening of dining and dancing was had by all including Sir Cliff Richard and Cilla Black who joined in celebrations.

The event took place at the Fisher Pond Great House, an historic house built in 1635 surrounded by 500 acres of sugar cane. Currently owned by John and Rain Chandler, it has become the place to have Sunday lunch.

Seated at Jenny’s table were (2nd left) Andrew Hewkins, a well-known artist whose wonderful, atmospheric collection of paintings of Barbados has just finished showing in Barbados.  Anthony Hunte (centre with glasses) the legendary horticulturalist and creator of the world famous Hunte’s Gardens in St. Joseph’s was another of Jenny’s guests. Sited in a sunken gully in the centre of Barbados’ tropical rain forest, he has created a unique series of mini gardens full of exotic rare plants with combinations of vibrant colours and textures which are a ‘must-see’ for all who visit Barbados.

As you can see the sobriety of the well-behaved table at the beginning of the evening ended up with a riotous time on the dance floor!

During the Ball there was a Live Auction of wonderful items donated by local businesses to raise funds for this extremely worthwhile charity.

Cliff gave the most wonderful off-the-cuff singing performance for the Jenna Trust. Without this generous gift of his time and talent, this worthy cause would not raise half the money it does and the evening would not have had such pizzazz.
