Over 130 revellers celebrated in style at the 2019 Wimbledon Village Stables Charity Ball, held at the magnificent Hotel du Vin in Wimbledon.  This hugely popular annual event was generously sponsored by Robert Holmes, Sybarite, Sandra and Andrew Treagus and Cathy Gordon.

Party goers were entertained by a magician and a caricaturist while, as always, the dance floor was packed until midnight.  The evening was in aid of the Wimbledon and Putney Commons Conservators, with the fantastic raffle prizes kindly donated by many Wimbledon Village shops, bars and restaurants demonstrating the wonderful community that we are proud to be part of. The silent auction generated a lot of interest, particularly as the lots included a dinner for 6 and afternoon tea for 10, both to be prepared and served by the WVS team in the stable yard.  Thanks to these wonderful prizes, the total amount raised came to a staggering £8,500. Also during the evening, the Annual Dressage Competition Trophy was presented to a delighted Michele Lardner who rode the magnificent Dan to victory.

Thank you Wimbledon Village for supporting our Charity Ball this Saturday at Hotel du Vin.  Look at all the fantastic prizes donated by this wonderful community.  So proud to be part of it!
