Last week Smith & Pinching hosted a spectacular James Bond themed charity event. As we arrived at the Odeon cinema in Norwich, we were greeted by a red carpet surrounded by a host of Aston Martins that, we were reliably informed by their ‘minder’ were actually used in past Bond movies. After having our photo taken by Places & Faces magazine we took our champagne around the VIP bar. Yes, it was that kind of evening. There were some very elegant ladies there, as well as some dapper chaps in their best evening gear.
After meeting a number of the hosts and availing ourselves of the gorgeous buffet food on offer we browsed the 007-themed displays. There were Rolex watches and diamonds from Windsor Bishop – some lucky ladies even got to try them on. We didn’t see much of the fashion show, as the female guests were often as fabulous as the models who walked through the crowds, so it was difficult to tell them apart!
We were eventually ushered into the cinema to take our seats for the charity raffle and the charity auction. The proceeds went to the nominated local charities EACH and the East Anglian Air Ambulance. A very fabulous evening for some very good causes.
