The Travel Brit Awards 2017

Charlotte Mulvanerty -

Oh what a night! The Travel Brits team once again put on a fantastic event, which ABTA LifeLine was honoured to be a part of. As the chosen charity for the awards, LifeLine’s Trudie and Charlotte attended the day at the spectacular Cricket St. Thomas Hotel to help raise awareness of everything that LifeLine is about.

With nearly 300 guests eagerly awaiting the start of the fun and games, Trudie stood up to tell them all who LifeLine are and what we do, playing the video of Tina’s wonderful story to show how much our work really does help. Charlotte then followed to announce the amazing prize draw that was taking place over dinner that evening; a luxurious dining experience on the Northern Belle, donated to us very generously by Belmond.

Then they were off, Trudie and Charlotte had been entrusted with the responsibility of heading up Team Pink, which gave them an amazing opportunity to answer the questions everyone had about LifeLine one-to-one and discuss how they personally could get involved. There was an art school, wind machine and even a blow-up horse race; the operators had really put a lot of effort into ensuring all of the guests had fun.

With the stunning hotel gardens as the backdrop, all of the guests stepped out in their red, white and blue glad rags, looking fabulous from head-to-toe, to have a few pre-dinner drinks which even fitted with the theme too. Then, with all fingers and toes crossed, came the prize giving; everyone that completed the activities was in with a chance of winning a fantastic prize from each operator.

Next stop was the dining hall, which was also decked out in red, white and blue and with ABTA LifeLine on each menu and a donation envelope at each place, where we tucked into a delicious 5 courses. The donation envelopes came flooding in, with just a £5 donation giving them entry into our prize draw, everyone was hoping for the winning envelope.

With our bellies full it was onto the main event, the Travel Brit Awards Ceremony. We all sat in the theatre, watching one by one as all the winners hurried to the stage to collect their prize; watching everyone’s hard work pay off and then let their hair down at the after party really was the perfect end to an amazing day.

Thank you so much to the fabulous Travel Brits team for your continued support, and look forward to next years.
