The annual Angels Quest lunch is viewed as the start of summer on many a social calendar, for traditionally the sun comes out to play on the day each year. This year marked the charity's 16th birthday, and 170 ladies came together to celebrate the occasion in style at the Four Seasons Hotel. Guests enjoyed a champagne reception before sitting down to a three-course lunch of scallop and asparagus salad, corn-fed chicken with spinach timbale, and ice cream in a brandy snap basket. Gift bags were packed with gorgeous treats, including make-up, jewellery and vouchers for both Arnotts and Saba. As each guest departed, they were presented with a hydrangea plant, with many commenting on how this has become a custom at the yearly event.
