Launch Night and Fundraiser Blog
What has been going on at Katie’s Heart? We launched the website at the end of February 2017 and we have had a crazy couple of months with sales, bookings, a launch night party, amazing feedback and even a cheeky local TV appearance!

Our goal is simple, have fun, meet new people, learn new skills and give back to Look Good Feel Better UK (LGFB). We thought it would be a great idea to throw a launch party and fundraiser for LGFB. This event was an opportunity to show our followers and friends what we are about, meet the local LGFB representatives and raise as much money as possible for the charity.
The event was held in Bar Barocco, Cardiff on St Patrick’s Day so everyone was in great spirits even before arriving with us. Tickets were £5 each, half going to LGFB and with the other half the ticket holder had a glittering and drinks.
We were very fortunate to be interviewed by Sian at Made In Cardiff TV a couple of weeks before our launch party. The interview was recorded and released on International Women's Day. We chatted about Katie's cancer experiences, our team and what we hope to achieve whilst inspiring others. This was a great advert for our launch night too, thanks Sian!

Kate & I both work full time so booked the launch party day off to have time to create our glitter wonderland ready for the evening's event. We set up our work stations ready to glitter and rhinestone and we displayed a selection of Aileen's knitwear. We both stood back, looked at what we had achieved, hugged (cwtched!), poured a sneaky pre party prosecco and if I'm honest shed a few happy tears- ready to rock!
The night was a great success and we are pleased to announce we raised £460 for LGFB! Thank you to all that attended and all those that snuck in from the bar below as they wanted to be glittered too!
