Over 100 locals and traders from the Stockbridge area of Edinburgh gathered at the Grange Club, who kindly provided the use of their elegant venue free of charge and, along with generous donations from Pickerings Gin who laid on a fantastic drinks reception, there were delicious canapés and support from Armstrong’s of Stockbridge, George Mewes Cheese, Kenji Sushi, The Stockbridge Restaurant and Street Box Thai.
The event was in aid of LifeCare which helps elderly become independent in Stockbridge and raised £1,500.
The auction of a piece of colourful abstract artwork of Arran, called ‘Sunset Coast’, which was generously donated by local Tommy Fitchett of Saorsa Art, based in Stockbridge raised an incredible £260. The entertaining auction was conducted by local JoJo Hernandez, owner of Stockbridge’s Lilies & Dreams and the winning bid came from yet another local, Harry Crombie of Stockbridge’s property management company Crombie & Co.
