Fight for Sight Party Proves a Success

Thousands raised at Elizabeth Street Party

On Wednesday 11 June thousands of people attended the Belgravia Traders Associations (BTA) Elizabeth Street Summer party to support Fight for Sight, which is predicted to raise over 40k.

 

Fight for Sight, the charity dedicated to funding pioneering eye research to prevent sight loss and treat eye disease was named as BTAs charity of the year for the annual event.

 

Held on the prestigious Elizabeth Street, on Grosvenors London estate in Belgravia, the street was packed on the glorious summer evening, with a mixture of famous faces including stars from Made in Chelsea and Chloe Green, locals and tourists. Visitors could explore the delights of the open air stalls from local shops, listen to live music and soak up the party atmosphere. The Lord Mayor of Westminster, Councillor Audrey Lewis, joined the party during the evening, and met Fight for Sights volunteers and staff.

 

Visitors were invited to make a voluntary donation to the charity as they entered the party, and were generous in doing so. The funds were swelled by the sale of raffle tickets for prizes including a Philip Treacy hat, tennis tickets to Queens club and a weekend break, a childrens party held at St Michaels Church and by the BTA bar, which donated all of its profits to the charity.

 

Nigel Pantling, Chair of Fight for Sight said: We are delighted that so many people were able to join in the celebrations at Elizabeth Street and to support our work in finding cures for sight loss. We are so grateful to everyone who made a donation, and especially to the BTA for choosing Fight for Sight as their partner charity.

 

The BTAs Chair, Tom Assheton, said: We have been hosting the street party for more than 20 years and each year were amazed at the growing support from everyone. Thank you to everyone who attended and showed true community spirit and to everyone who helped to organise the event to make it another successful year.

 

A special thanks to America Express, the main sponsor of this years Elizabeth Street Summer party.
