A DRINKS reception was held at Fawley Court to raise money for the Mayor of Henley’s charities.
About 100 people attended the event where there was a raffle and an auction with prizes including a hotel stay in Prague, dinner at Leander Club, London theatre tickets and a signed framed photograph of Buzz Aldrin landing on the moon.
A total of £1,600 was raised for MIND Oxfordshire, the Teenage Wilderness Trust and Thames Valley Animal Welfare.
Mayor Lorraine Hillier said: “It went really well. It was an awful evening weather-wise as it absolutely threw it down but it was a fabulous venue and there was a really nice atmosphere. I really enjoyed it.
“The charities were represented and MIND put a painting by one of its members into the raffle.”
Cllr Hillier presented host Aida Dellal with a picture of Fawley Court by local photographer Jim Donahue.
