Wongs Jewellers in Whitechapel celebrated the impending birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall’s baby with a charity Baby Shower.
At the event, which included a champagne afternoon tea and beauty treatments, guests were asked to bring along an item of baby clothing worth up to £10, and all donations were given to Forum Housing Association which provides supported accommodation for vulnerable young adults.
Owner Peter Wong said: “We wanted to embrace the nation’s anticipation for the arrival of the next royal generation and as we thought baby Wales would get enough gifts, we wanted to ensure that those less fortunate would benefit. The ladies certainly seem to have had a great afternoon.”
Lesley Rogers, from Wirral-based Forum Housing Association, added: “We are thrilled that Wongs Jewellers have combined a fun afternoon with the ladies with raising awareness for our association and more importantly with providing much needed baby clothing for people who need it most.
“We cannot thank Wongs and their guests enough for the kindness and support.”
