The Draycott Nursing & Care 15th Anniversary Party at The Orangery, Holland Park

Angela Hamlin, MD and founder of Draycott Nursing & Care celebrated her 15th Anniversary with a wonderful party at The Orangery in Holland Park. Blessed by a fantastic summer’s evening, guests were treated to cocktails, champagne and never ending canapes as well as inegenious poetry – made up on the spot and relevant to any three words (nouns, verbs or adjectives) you cared to chose. Characteristically generous of Angela, she chose to use the occasion as a means of raising awareness of Canine Partners, a wonderful (and very small charity) which helps disabled people lead a full and active life by training dogs to assist them in everyday situations. We watched as dogs picked up ventolin inhalers and five pence pieces from the floor, took washing out of the machine and helped undress someone. Equally generous were some of the guests with a total of £9,495.00 being raised on the night through raffle tickets and on the spur of the moment auction of some of the raffle prizes. The Mayor of Kensington & Chelsea, Councillor Christopher Buckmaster was in attendance with the Mayoress, Ann Hobson. We wish Angela and her team every success for the next fifteen years.
