Carlton House Terrace in London was the location once more for this spectacular charity event, the “Foundation Holiday Drinks and Reception” hosted by Bill and Maggie Dost on the 8th of December The stalwart Erik Lorincz of the Savoy Hotel was there as the baron of the bar, and music was from the ever popular keyboard player, Jon Nickoll.
Bill and Maggie Dost’s receptions are not only sophisticated and elegant, they always have a charitable cause at their heart, and this year it was the Paul Hansell Foundation, a charity committed to raising awareness about the importance of making mental health part of our daily lives and daily conversations.
The Paul Hensell Foundation has a fascinating method of helping inspire its themes and its supporters. One of the photos shows Brian Hansell and Bill Dost holding a #ConvoPlate, which is just a simple hand-painted stoneware plates that are circulate around the community to get people talking about mental health. Each one is different and was created by a member of our local community with their own special message and meaning.
