On Thursday 19 May the Baytree Centre opened its doors to friends, family and other special guests to celebrate 20 years of our life-changing work. The evening kicked off with a ‘surprise’ performance from the Baytree choir while guests enjoyed a variety of savoury canapés from
around the world.
Helping to serve the canapés were Baytree Volunteers, Baytree Ambassadors (made up of girls who attend after-school activities and pictured in green), adult students and Baytree staff who were all also on hand to tell guests more about the Centre and its work.
We were delighted that Lorraine Pascale (pictured left), from the BBC series ‘Baking Made Easy’, was also able to attend; later tweeting @BaytreeCentre with her thanks for the invitation and appreciation of the Centre’s hard-work.
Following a performance from Baytree’s streetdance group, The Funketts, and a song from our Into School girls, guests were invited to enjoy sweet canapés and drinks while the raffle was drawn.
The evening was a huge success with everyone from staff to volunteers to guests having a great time. We are very grateful to Gareth Edward-Jones and the women of Baytree for donating their time and expertise to make the wonderful canapés and to all our students and volunteers who helped make the evening a great success.
