It brought together a wealth of talent and design which have benefited CCLEF in its fundraising efforts. We look forward to a continued relationship with the board of trustees and the CCLEF worldwide.”
Judith Fisher, Splendours event organiser and CCLEF Hon.

We are also fortunate to have the assistance and direction provided by our SOTC Organising Committee, which includes CCLEF Trustees and representatives from The May Fair Hotel team, Fashion Lookout, Market Accents and Shelly Stock Hutter, among many other supporters. Such invaluable assistance, coupled with the equally generous sponsorship from our lead sponsor HSBC plc, has contributed immensely to bring this spectacular event to life once again.”
