Charity Event Preview: Christmas Wishes for Rwanda, 28 November, Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh

11 Nov

The Christmas season starts with an afternoon of glamour and beauty at The Balmoral on Saturday 28 November at 12 noon.

A Christmas Fashion Show for 200 of Edinburghs most stylish is to be held in the magnificent surroundings of the five-star Balmoral Hotel.  Guests will be warmly welcomed with a champagne reception before sitting down to lunch with wine, followed by a fabulous fashion show.

The event is being held to help raise funds for Wish for Rwanda, a new charity founded by local businesswoman, Jackie Calder.

Jackie visited Rwanda earlier this year as part of a business exchange programme organised by The Together Partnership and was touched by the strength and courage of the people of Rwanda.

This trip was a life changing experience for Jackie and she returned to Scotland on a mission to raise one million pounds.  This is the first event to be held in aid of Wish For Rwanda before its official launch in the new year.

Rwanda is a beautiful country and its people are now living and working towards a future of reconciliation. They need our help a hand up, not a hand out and my wish for Rwanda is to provide sustainable solutions to projects that will help promote a stable environment and healthier population.

John Lewis will showcase their international winter collection highlighting the seasons colours and styles including glamorous cocktail and evening wear just in time to help you decide what to wear this Christmas and New Year.

Tickets cost £60 each or tables of ten at 600.  To book tickets visit

Wish for Rwanda is a charity registered in Scotland, which aims to fund community projects that will promote health, education and reconciliation in Rwanda. To find out more about Wish for Rwanda or to make a donation visit
