Celebrity TV Chef Joins Bella Vou’s Fundraising Drive for Local Children’s Charity

The Bella Vou cosmetic surgery clinic will host a fundraising event to raise money for local children’s charity, Tree of Hope. The event on The Pantiles, Tunbridge Wells, will run from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 17th December.

The event will feature a giant sleigh where families can pose for photos with ‘The Grinch’ for £5, alongside a gingerbread decoration stall where children can decorate their own gingerbread Christmas trees for a donation of £3. Bella Vou has vowed to match the proceeds raised by the event, which will be donated to Tree of Hope.


Celebrity TV chef, Rosemary Shrager, who runs Rosemary Shrager’s Cookery School on The Pantiles, has baked a selection of gingerbread decorations for the event.

Rosemary said: “I’m thrilled to be involved with this event to raise funds for such a worthwhile charity. I look forward to seeing as many people as possible turn out on Saturday to support Tree of Hope, and I hope that all the children enjoy decorating and eating a delicious gingerbread biscuit!”

Roger Bigwood, Clinic Director at Bella Vou, said: “We are extremely grateful to Rosemary for donating the delicious gingerbread biscuits and we hope that as many people as possible will turn out to support the event. Tree of Hope is a fantastic local charity which improves the lives of many poorly and disabled children and the funds will make a welcome contribution to their efforts this Christmas.”

Tree of Hope is a children’s charity based in Tunbridge Wells which offers assistance to the families of seriously ill and disabled children in the UK who need specialist medical treatment. The charity provides support and advice to families fundraising for medical surgery, treatment, therapies and equipment which would not otherwise be available to them.


Emma Bourne, Fundraising Manager at Tree of Hope, said: “We are very grateful for the time and energy that Bella Vou staff and their helpers have put into creating such a lovely festive fundraising event which will hopefully be enjoyed by many families in the Pantiles on the 17th December!

“Fundraising events like this one provide vital funds to help our charity to assist seriously ill and disabled children, and will help make a huge difference to many families who need support from Tree of Hope. Partnerships with businesses are essential for our charity to be able to provide services to children and families who need help.”
