I make no bones about my love of coffee and the gorgeousness that is OKA Direct. I’ve been drinking coffee for years and have been a loyal OKA customer for ages.
Last Friday I held a Coffee Morning at the Sunninghill shop in aid of HeadSmart and The Brain Tumour Charity. It was an honour and privilege as it is one of my favourite shops, full of stunning interiors from around the world, and we drank coffee out of my favourite mugs. Shoppers and visitors were able to appreciate the surroundings whilst hearing about the work of the The Brain Tumour Charity and understand more about the HeadSmart campaign from my friend, HeadSmart champion and bereaved mother Sacha Langton-Gilks.
The weather was rather off-putting so not as many people attended as I would have hoped but we still had a great time and raised £150 for HeadSmart and The Brain Tumour Charity and those that did come along who had not actually been into an OKA shop were happy admiring the gorgeous furniture and interiors. If you have never been they are shops of beauty and wonderment and you will need everything, or is that just me?
We also held a raffle with some lovely prizes – thank you to everyone who donated!
I certainly enjoyed myself and I have got lots of inspiration for my house (when the builders leave!).
My dog is way too large for this dog bed but it looks so cute and cosy!
I love acorns and oak leaves (unless the latter blow into the house), so I particularly liked the napkins, they’re on my list!
After drawing the raffle I announced I would be doing the Husky Challenge which I have blogged about here! I’ve never done a challenge like this before so it’s a challenge within a challenge!
Thank you to everyone who came along, thanks to those who shared the flyer (I was delighted with it – look it’s got my mugs and everything!) and thanks to everyone who bought a raffle ticket.
I’d like to end by saying a VERY VERY BIG THANK YOU OKA FOR EVERYTHING!
