Women’s pamper party in St Albans

PUBLISHED: 17:26 09 August 2012

A CHARITY pamper party for women is being held tomorrow (Friday August 10) from 7-9pm at St Paul’s Church in Fleetville.

Organised by Sarah Donachie, of St Albans, attendees can expect mini-treatments such as manicures and back massages, a raffle, and a complimentary glass of wine for £10. So far raffle prizes have been donated by Fitness First, Anastasias, Bare Escentuals, Nando’s, NS Salons, Harpers Fitness and Jo Banks Salon.

The event is in aid of Voluntary Services Overseas, a charity working to fight poverty and inequality globally.

This is the second pamper event Sarah has arranged after the first was a roaring success: “We did one in March for Oxfam where we raised over £650.”

She hopes it will be a ‘relaxing evening’ and a ‘big girl’s night out’.

“Generally the event is a girly evening in - a catch up, a quiz and a pamper!”

She added: “Beauticians are working for free and providing the treatments and Bare Escentuals are sending two make-up girls to help out.”

No stranger to charity, Sarah has been all over the world helping others, and visited Kenya in 2008 where she built a classroom and taught students.

She has an upcoming trip to Bangladesh in September, with International Citizen Service, which is a government funded project.

“I will be working on 1 of 3 projects; water and sanitation, farming or healthcare.

“There will be seven other UK volunteers on the trip but we will be sent to three different regions of Bangladesh.”
