Northern Cleft Foundation @ Mercure Blackburn Dunkenhalgh Hotel & Spa

Juel from Simplicity Events was involved with the planning of our Bollywood Ball in aid of the Northern Cleft Foundation Charity which was held on June 7th 2014 at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel, Clayton-le-Moors, Accrington. We had nearly 340 attendees and the feedback we received was universally positive. Juel gave freely of his services, time and expertise and was wonderful to work with as he was consistently reliable and helpful – all this in spite of the fact that he was not being paid and helped us to support the charity. He sourced the food for the event and helped us choose our menu which was described as being ” wonderful”, ” far superior to most mass catering ” and ” authentically Indian cuisine of the highest standard”  by our guests. He put us in touch with the dancers and the company who provided the music for the event as well as connecting us with the room dressers – all of who did an excellent job.

Throughout the months of planning he was readily available at the end of the phone, contacted me to keep me informed of situations, liaised with others and always did what he said he would. He also gave helpful suggestions and went out of his way to think of ways of improving the event. He was there on the night of the ball to ensure everything ran smoothly and he contributed greatly to the success of the event. We raised £27000 for the charity which will change the lives of many children in India and we are grateful to Juel for all he did to facilitate this. I would recommend him to anyone planning a wedding or an event with an Indian theme – certainly his service was outstanding and greatly appreciated. I am a perfectionist and it was wonderful to work with Juel who is a perfectionist too and understands the importance of getting everything absolutely right for the client.
