This year over 60 NZWA members gathered together in the Penthouse for our 2019 Christmas lunch. It was a lively occasion and delicious homemade food was served, complimented by NZ wines to give a truly kiwi flavour to the celebration.
The raffle raised a grand total of approximately $1000 which will be forwarded to the Dress for Success charity in Christchurch, NZ. It was a fine effort from members who all thought Dress for Success was such a worthy women’s charity.
As well as a particularly good Christmas Quiz which caused much amusement, we were treated at the end of the luncheon to Christmas carols sung by four members of the London based choir, EC4. They were superb singers who also led us well in ‘group carol singing’ and managed to finish their ensemble with a rendition of the kiwi ‘Pukeko in a Punga Tree’ Christmas carol which delighted all who were present.
