J for Julia says:
A few weeks ago there was a buzz of excitement at Ballet4life, as founder and director, Donna had been nominated as a finalist in two categories of the Hounslow Business Awards! They were for Entrepreneur of the Year, for Ballet4life and also for Charity of the Year, for her much loved charity, Move into Wellbeing® for people with Parkinson's and other mobility restrictions.
Much to her regret Donna was unable to attend this prestigious event, and I was therefore fortunate enough to represent Ballet4life on this important occasion, which was held at the Hilton Hotel in the beautiful grounds of Syon Park.
Inside the setting was magical, with rows of fairy-lit twinkling trees and elegantly dressed guests sat at tables, laden with tasty dishes of food! What was not to like?!
We all waited with heightened anticipation for the main event of the evening...the results! There were many diverse companies assembled all hoping for a successful result.
Finally, the results were in, and one by one the categories were read out and winning candidates called up to the podium to receive their award and to give a brief description of their company.
It was a very proud moment for us all at Ballet 4life when Donna was awarded with Highly Commended in the Entrepreneur category, which was followed by a speech given by Tava Walton of gsk with a glowing report on the inspiring tuition given to the many clients who attend the ballet classes and the excellent work with the Move into Wellbeing® Charity.
Congratulations, well done Donna and thanks for all your excellent tuition!
