EDITOR'S LETTER

Hello Breeps

This week is all about gratitude and the art of giving...

Our event at the British Consul-General’s Chris O’Connor’s residence in Hancock Park, on Thursday evening. I’m happy to say it was a huge success thanks to all the people involved. The night honored Dame Joan Collins, Lisa Vanderpump and Audley Harrison for their commitment to charitable organizations throughout their careers.


It was a beautiful rainy evening with twinkling lights and an ice sculpture Photo Booth at the back of the bar that helped make up this Winter Wonderland A photo-booth with santa where guests could send holiday greetings back home to the UK Courtesy of the night big sponsor AIR NEW ZEALAND.

Christine Peake from Peake Group made sure everyone was well oiled with such brands like Deep Eddy Vodka, One Hope Wine, Honest Ade mixers and Heineken Beer. Paul’s kitchen (www.paulskitchen.com) passed delicius appertizers like mini shepherds pies, turkey rolls with cranberry and of course for desert the mince pies and sticky toffee pudding came out! It was superbly delicious. Gustaf Farwell and Maria Elena Infantino entertained the crowd with some wonderful christmas classics, such as “Baby, it’s cold outside". And of course all this was a fundraiser and UKares managed to raise over $25,000 to help fund their yearly programs including the hardship fund where expats who have fallen on hard times, can apply for help to tidy them over and help get them back on their feet. visit the website to find out more www.ukares.org.

Now all of this couldn’t have been possible without all of our wonderful volunteers, committee members and our hardworking board and of course the attendees and major donors, who gave so much of their time and talents, i’m so very proud and grateful of everyone who rallied round to make this event happen. Without a big laundry list here, everyone was thanked in the program. We also did the fun toy drive for adopt-a-letter, and helped out quite a few kids this Christmas. Here's a rundown of the evening’s events and the letter from our CG, Chris O’Connor.

PASSPORT ADVICE

Make sure your passport is not about to expire before you book travel. Visit our blog for details on how to renew your passport.

One of the most common questions we get is 'Where can I get UK passport pictures done?'

Thanks to Brits in LA Member, Mario, we now have a pretty easy answer!
A simple (and very cheap!) solution to finding UK size passport photos since some places only do US style photos. Use your smartphone or digital camera to take a picture against a grey or beige background and then upload to a free website such as http://www.idphoto4you.com/, then order a print online at CVS etc. Total cost, 32 cents!

We have new info for applying for a passport for your US born kids
