Jean Barratt – Co-ordinator – RAG Project

“What can I say? Thanks very much for all you did seems a bit tame – but thank you anyway. You were there for RAG “Big Time” and we really appreciate it. Decor, invites, flowers, menus – the whole places was transformed and looked amazing. I can’t tell you how many people commented on the success of the evening.

Thank you all very much for the hard work and creativity that you put into making sure that your part in the RAG / SHAWCO Ball was absolutely outstanding. It’s such a pleasure to have this level of competency and to know that I could just hand everything over and know that it was all in capable hands – please convey out thanks to everyone concerned. We look forward to using Exclusive Hire & Events for future RAG functions.

Andre Botha – Trans Africa Safaris

Hello Liz

I don’t think I said goodbye (although the hooch might have impaired my judgement!), but wanted to thank you for an absolutely FABULOUS party. That was an epic jol and without doubt the best we have ever had (and may ever have). It makes the world of difference to spend the money and have an expert like you and your various incredibly efficient teams assist in such a project. Many, many thanks!!

Send Shaun my best and I hope that he’s mobile soon and back problems are history.

Cheers and love,


PS        Thanks for the lovely gift!

PPS     Only suggestion and not sure how practical would be to have a larger plate under the brasserie (spelling??) and a wooden board beneath the metal plate if placing these on the lawn, because they do burn the grass.

Gabi Lowe – The Jenna Lowe Trust

Hello Liz, Gabi Lowe here.

I am writing to say a very heartfelt thank you to for responding so generously to Struan’s request to support our Valentines in the Valley fundraiser for The Jenna Lowe Trust. It was extremely ‘Jenna-rous’ and kind of you; and I believe not all plain sailing either as the request got to you so late! Thank you for being so accommodating and so kind regardless of that.

In total, and only because of generous donations such as yours, the Valentine picnic made just under R250 000 which means that bar unforeseen circumstances we as a family won’t have to do another fundraiser for Jenna until Valentines next year – an inordinate relief and enormous help.

Thank you so much for your kind support  - we hope to repeat the Valentines picnic last year as it was a beautiful and much loved evening  - hopefully next time with no gremlins (such as late ordering! J)

With much gratitude – Stuart and Gabi Lowe
