LOTS OF MONEY RAISED AT OUR YOGA PARTY : )

A HUGE BIG SMILEY THANK YOU to everyone who cooked, donated, photographed and joined in the ‘community’ yoga for our Yoga Party. We raised a whopping £492 for the Leicester based charity Hope Against Cancer.

For those that couldn’t attend, here’s a flavour of the evening…

Firstly, we did about an hour of yoga – mostly with chairs and then worked with a standing balance ‘Vrksasana’ (tree pose) both individually and as a group…

While we waited for the food to heat up Prof. Raghu Raghavan (Trustee of Hope Against Cancer) told us about the work of the charity – how it helps buy equipment, sponsors the work of PhD students and collaborates with other charities to do larger projects.

Then we ate a lovely feast of lasagne and salad (there was a choice of 4 different types and all were delicious)…

Afterwards we had a selection of homemade/grown desserts (of course I had to try them all)…

Finally we all kept our fingers crossed as the raffle was drawn… prizes included a photo shoot and print by Daniel McClean, vouchers for Cook, lots of wine, chocolates and candles. Everyone went home with a treat!

We all had such a good time that plans are already in motion to have another Yoga-Social in September…  a picnic at Rutland water. Keep an eye out in the newsletter for further information.
