Christmas in July. Not such a silly idea.

Celebrating Christmas in July has never been at the top of the tree for things to do in winter so when I was asked to be Master of Ceremonies for Foundation Shine’s Christmas in July fundraiser I was a little apprehensive.

However, by the end of the night I was a convert.  Our table had a lot of fun. That was reflected on every table in the room. Everyone got into the spirit of the night. People were so  generous  giving, and giving again with the money going to help Helen Mayo House.

The National Wine Centre was decked out to Festive season splendour and we all enjoyed the carols and fine food with a Christmas flavour.  Then to top it off Santa arrived.

If your not convinced its a great idea please consider:
