The reason I was quite so sleepy on Sunday is because we went to The Boodles Boxing Ball on Saturday. A charity boxing match, hosted by Boodles on behalf of the Starlight Foundation . Starlight is the most wonderful charity, they grant wishes for sick children; trips to Disney Land, meeting Father Christmas, recording a song... whatever they want, Starlight organise it. What's amazing though, is the difference doctors see in the children who are chosen to have a wish granted. There is a 70% likelihood that a 'terminally' ill child will survive, if they are a Starlight child. Isn't that incredible?? 70%! Doctors see a marked difference in the child's attitude, health & general disposition. The planning, the excitement, the dreaming... it's not just memories being built, it's futures.
So, people all over the city slipped into their glad rags, bow ties & diamonds and headed down to the ball.
I wore a Butter by Nadia dress. I need to do a whole separate blog post on this collection. It's the best thing since sliced bread... and butter.
I've never seen a live boxing match before and we got to see 3! I quite like it, but mostly because I like being in a crowd of supporters, cheering, booing & hissing at the fighters! It's panto, but with added sweat... Sexy, I know! It was a wonderful evening and if you have a chance I thoroughly recommend checking out the Starlight Foundation . The work they do is quite simply... extraordinary. .
