More than 60 people gathered recently at the stunning Lavender Fields at Castle Farm near Sevenoaks to enjoy an exclusive reception organised by ellenor – the children’s hospice at home charity – as the guests of owners William and Caroline Alexander. Attendees enjoyed canapés and the sound of harp music while soaking up the sight and scent of acres of English lavender. Claire Cardy, chief executive of ellenor, introduced its Children’s Hospice at Home Appeal. The charity currently supports 150 seriously ill children each year; however, more than double that number need its help and demand for the charity’s service is increasing every day. “It was a fantastic evening in a stunning setting and a wonderful opportunity for us to create more awareness of ellenor’s Children’s Hospice at Home service and the need for vital funds to be raised to meet the demand in Kent,” said Rachel Holweger, director of fundraising. “We are very grateful to the Alexanders for their generosity, to Drayman for donating the wine and to all those who joined us for this magnificent evening.”
