The ‘ladies luncheon’, which took place on September 14, was held to raise money for the Lord Leycester Hospital Capital Campaign for conserving the building and protecting the 450-year-old charity.

Guests at the lunch included Warwick mayor Neale Murphy and former Guardsman John Dawson, who is a resident at the Lord Leycester. John suffered life-changing injuries whilst serving in Afghanistan and now lives at the Lord Leycester.

The Brothers – former service members - have resided since the Elizabethan age at the Lord Leycester.

As well as a lunch, there was also a fashion show, which was organised by Sharon from shop NV Her in Warwick, a raffle and action.

Prizes were donated by businesses including Warwick Castle, Hamlington’s, Hair Management and the Rose and Crown. The wine was donated by Booker Wholesale. A special prize for the ‘best dressed lady’ went to Lyn Bemand.

Volunteers Lyn Bolton, Sue Fardoe and Pam Williams together help to raise £3,602 from the event.
