Zen Rocking it at the CHAS Rocking Horse Ball 2017
Raising Money for CHAS Children’s Charity
The recent CHAS Rocking Horse Ball was a glitzy circus themed extravaganza which saw over 300 VIPs descend on the glamorous Prestonfield event. Team Zen were delighted to attend and show support to such a worthy cause by donating both treatments and sponsoring a table.
With a host of colourful and mesmerising performers, themed Pickering’s Gin cocktails not to mention a delicious three course meal, it was an unforgettable (and moving) evening. Because not only did the fundraiser raise a staggering £101,000 on the night with £75,000 going directly to CHAS’ work with families who have a child with life-limiting conditions, Zen’s auction prize donations raised £830. Together with our table sponsorship, auction prizes and other contributions we are proud to have made a total contribution of well over £2000.
If you haven’t already heard of CHAS – Children’s Hospice Association Scotland – it’s the only charity in Scotland that provides hospice services for babies, children and young people with life shortening conditions. I cannot even begin to imagine how heart breaking and challenging this must be for families and a CHAS mum Veronika Baxter eloquently explained that having a bay with additional needs is like booking your dream holiday but ending up in a very different country. However, you soon discover that this other country is also beautiful and special in a very different way. Veronika explained the difference CHAS has made to her and family’s life and I’m so proud that Zen has been able to help other families like Veronika’s in some way.
