How Brands and Businesses Can Get Involved In Our Sold Out Midsummer’s Afternoon Tea and Garden Party In Aid of Foyle Hospice

Bringing together top local influencers and talented designers, The Style Edit in association with Drenagh House Estate is hosting the now sold out Midsummer’s afternoon tea and garden party to raise funds for Foyle Hospice.

Foyle Hospice provides ongoing palliative care services for patients with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses while supporting their families and loved ones in the North West of Northern Ireland. Their commitment is to improve the quality of life of patients while extending care and support to their families and loved ones. Through our event, we will provide fundraising support to further this honourable cause.

The event will consist of a fashion show followed by a panel discussion with top Northern Irish influencers, plus London based fashion blogger, Debbie Le (@thefashionablepan) with conversation based around the power of positivity. Designers featured within the fashion segment include Catriona Hanly, Riona Treacy, Kevan Jon and Grainne Maher Millinery. The fabulous Gerry Lavery will also be in attendance to interview our best dressed guests on the red carpet.

The Power of Positivity panel will be hosted by international bestselling author, inspirational speaker and metaphysical healer, Dr Mary Helen Hensley. Alongside Debbie Le, panellists include beauty entrepreneur, Louise McDonnell (@lmdmakeup), fitness and travel influencer, Sinead Hegarty (@sineadheg), wellbeing positivity advocate Annette Kelly (@little_penny_thoughts), and Belfast Fashion Week Director and PR Powerhouse, Cathy Martin (@cathymartin10). Guests will enjoy entertainment from musicians, George Hutton, Mairead Carlin, Les Magee and The Bentley Boys while immersing themselves in the beautiful surroundings of Drenagh House Estate and gaining invaluable information and inspiration from the event content.

This event is in aid of raising charitable funds for Foyle Hospice and in memory of Bernadette McWilliams. All proceeds raised at the event, including ticket price, will go towards this cause.
