Guest Speaker Sally Kettle

The evening’s guest speaker was Sally Kettle; an adventurer and personal trainer who was the first woman to row the Atlantic Ocean twice from East to West and who is set to become the first to row it three times. Sally outlined her experiences which included rowing the Atlantic with her mother as well as raising more than £500,000 for charity and writing books.

Donations and Auction Prizes

An auction was also a key part of the evening with prizes ranging from a weekend use of a BMW, Goodwood festival, Virgin Balloon flight to a signed Arsenal shirt. The auction alone raised a total of £4,700. At Bower Private Clients we are proud to campaign for these two great causes and everyone who kindly donated and supported was key to the success of the event.
