    Lord + Lady Ardee invite you to Killruddery’s annual Harvest Moon Gala Charity Ball in aid of Their Lives Matter, Tanzania – a charity very close to Lady Ardee’s heart.

    With this wonderful event making a return for another year, you will be welcomed with a drinks reception and string quartet in the beautiful surrounds of The Orangery, before making your way to our Dairy Yard and 17th Century Grain Store for a delicious three course meal, with music, dancing and general merriment until late. This won’t be a traditional gala dinner, expect to move around – three courses reimagined from your traditional sit down dinner!

    Complete with a raffle and auction on the evening in the Dairy Yard, proceeds from this charity ball will go towards the wonderful work that Their Lives Matter does, expanding children’s cancer services in Tanzania, and helping to achieve TLM’s mission to provide free and curative treatment for the children of Tanzania, every time.

    Join us in your finery for a fantastic evening, all in aid of a very worthy cause.

    ABOUT THEIR LIVES MATTER
    Their Lives Matter was founded by Bray native Dr. Trish Scanlan in a tiny ward in Tanzania with a team that included one local medical colleague and five nurses. Before this wonderful charity was founded, nine out of ten children with cancer who reached treatment facilities in Tanzania, died. In addition to this, those that reached these facilities represented less than 10% of children with cancer in Tanzania. As a result – in overall terms a cancer diagnosis was fatal for almost every child in the country. In 2005, less than 10 percent of children diagnosed with cancer survived; now over 50% of children diagnosed with cancer survive as a result of the work of everyone at TLM and the Tanzanian children’s cancer network.

    Curing kids’ cancer in Tanzania – together we can!

    ABOUT SARAH JENKINSON

    Sarah Jenkinson lives and works in Galway city as a full time basketmaker. Sarah made her first willow basket a few years ago and instantly fell in love with the uniquely spiced aroma and texture of willow, and the ancient craft of basketmaking. Having been given the opportunity to work as an apprentice with Ciaran Hogan at his workshop and shop at the Spiddal Craft Centre, it was here that Sarah developed her skills and love for traditional Irish basketmaking along with attending basketmaking residencies all over Europe where she learned new basketry skills from many talented basketmakers.

    Sarah loves weaving with willow and she has found that the ancient craft of basketmaking has rooted her in a very special place, deeply connected to the earth. Sarah weaves baskets with barked willow allowing the stunning natural colours and the uniquely spiced aroma of the willow varieties to shine through on each basket. Sarah also grows various willow varieties in a small Salley Garden in Connemara from which she harvests willow every winter for use in her baskets.
