CHAS Winter Wonderland - Afternoon Tea 2019 - Cancelled

Due to the current pandemic, we've had to cancel all of this year's high profile events.

As last year's events collectively brought in over £500k for the charity, this is a huge loss, but the health and safety of our guests is our priority and therefore we believe it is the right decision.

Rest assured, we will be back with our events as soon as we can, but in the meantime please keep an eye out for some exciting virtual events to take part in.

In the meantime, should you wish to make a donation please do so. 

Please know that any support you can give during this time will make such a difference to our children and families who are facing the toughest journey imaginable. 

Thank you!

Meanwhile you can see the highlights of last year's event below.

There was entertainment from The MGA Academy, Michelle McManus and SoundSational Choir and BLEEKER, along with a glitter station from Stina Sparkles, a GIF box from BLUR Productions and a candy buffet table courtesy of Luca's.


Our ladies dug deep playing all the games to win a diamond ring supported by Liam Ross, flights to New York courtesy of United Airlines and £1k in the Christmas Cracker, as well as buying their Christmas presents in the silent auction. Andy Nicol expertly conducted the live auction selling a beautiful Jack Morrocco painting, a training session with Chris Paterson, a holiday villa for ten in Andalucia, Dine Around Edinburgh with Signature Pubs, a Luxury London trip to see LORRAINE and an opportunity for ten people to have lunch with Forth One's Breakfast Team.

We were honoured to hear from CHAS parent's, Brooke and Kyle, who shared their story about how Robin House supported them and their son Hunter. Because of the generosity of our guests, we raised a phenomenal £59,358, which after costs means £38,796 will go directly to our work with families like Brooke and Kyle.

We had two wonderful photographers, Camera Shy and William Sinclair, on the day, along with a GIF box from BLUR Productions. We also had a fabulous video from Sole Productions.
