A special Box at Cheltenham Racecourse was transformed into a "Beaton-esque Boudoir", fit for My Fair Lady, by the "style-stallion" himself Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen. This is to raise funds for the Spinal Injuries Association and Countryside Alliance, which was unveiled at the Countryside Race Day on Friday 13th November 2009.
Featuring much of the new Cecil Beaton fabric range, the Box has been decorated in a pretty pale pink and white modern Edwardian style, to emulate the original period, with a few LLB twists. Design companies have been keen to support this worthy project, with Beaudesert supplying the fabrics, Scumble Goosie the chairs, Jali the ornate cut out panelling, FlowerCube the floral arrangements and foliage and As Good As Grass the unique flooring, many free of charge or at much reduced rates.
Every year in the UK over 1000 people experience a spinal cord injury. Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) specialises in support for injured individuals and there families, providing services and publications that enable and encourage paralysed people to lead independent lives. They also campaign for improved medical and social care for spinal cord injury.
The Box is now available for corporate entertaining, fashion shoots, and interviews throughout the year, with a percentage of the profits raised going to SIA.
