ABOUT 100 guests enjoyed a fund-raising lunch at Fawley Court in aid of the Sue Ryder hospice in Nettlebed on Saturday.

They were welcomed with a champagne reception at the Fawley River Club on the bank of River Thames at the invitation of Aida Dellal, who has owned the historic mansion since 2010.

Guests included Henley Deputy Mayor Will Hamilton and his partner Joanne Cope as well as local professionals, business owners and prominent figures such as Ed Simons, chairman of the Kenton Theatre trustees, and Sue and Jon Ryan, who run the Henley Literary Festival.

Before the three-course lunch, guests enjoyed drinks and canapés while watching the action from the royal regatta. It was followed by an afternoon tea and an auction.

Hospice director Stewart Marks said: “It’s fantastic that Aida has very generously agreed to once again support a charity very close to her home which provides services to the people of South Oxfordshire and Henley in particular.”

More pictures from the event will appear in this week's Henley Standard.
