On the 19th May, we were honoured to be part of Eaton House Belgravia’s annual gala, an event that has run for the past 10 years. Each year, the school fundraising committee comes together to put on a spectacular event to raise money for charity. This year, we were lucky enough to be chosen along with The Giving Tree as beneficiaries.
We chose Borne as we were totally overwhelmed by the support and passion for the charity from parents at the school, and by the charities representatives too. It is a charity with a good ethos and aims every parent can empathise with, and having a pre-term godson myself, it was extremely close to my heart. The support team Borne have to help with the organisation of the event was also second to none, and it made a big difference to us.
Clemmie Drewett, Co-Chair
Working collaboratively to support to the events committee, Borne brought operational and creative expertise to ensure the best possible event, and raise a huge sum of money for both charities involved.
This year, the theme was the roaring 20s and the 250 guests were dressed to impress, ready to enjoy the decadent surroundings of Claridge’s. The night began with a champagne reception and entertainment from the Diamond Boys followed by a welcome address from the Headmistress Miss Annabel Abbott. This was swiftly followed by a lovely three course meal, a charity address from our Founder Mark Johnson and then a live auction – along with a casino and cabaret dancers!
This is the first year Clemmie and I have chaired the charity fundraiser for Eaton House Belgravia. We have been delighted by our experience working alongside Borne in organising this event. The professionalism, knowledge, support, organisation and commitment has been second to none, and we are extremely impressed by the Borne team.

It truly was a fantastic event and we’d like to extend a heartfelt thanks to Eaton House Belgravia for choosing to support Borne. We’d also like to thank the events committee, the parents who lent invaluable support, and event sponsors Macoil.
