Lucy the new Glamour Puss posed for photographs with her trophy and managed to improvise a moving speech when she was presented with it. like all A listers she was quite overcome with emotion….
Hi guys, I love you all, the wonderful Trustees who trawled through that tricky spread sheet to shortlist me and the wonderful Twiggy who recognised my star quality. Thank you too to Lily my predecessor who has been such an inspiration to me.
I’ve been responding to a lot of fan mail, and it can get quite complicated as my assistant was off on annual leave for a while alas it held me up. I just wanted to say it was with great honour and pleasure that I accepted the Award and title of Glamour Puss of the year, I will do my utmost to make you all proud throughout the year of 2015, as for now I am looking forward to relaxing as i have been very busy socialising and entreating over the festive period, with lots of caviar and champagne and splendid gifts one is feeling rather overwhelmed and ready for an annual detox, so for now I send you my warmest wishes for the year ahead, hope it is a purrrrfect one for you all. Sincerely yours, Madam Lulu.
Lily had already prepared a moving tribute – there wasn’t a dry eye in the house
“So here it is, the end of my reign,
And oh how I’d love to do it all again.
Representing the rescue has been my pleasure,
And given me memories I’ll always treasure.
Being a Glamour Puss comes naturally to me,
Grooming, manicures and purrjazzels, coz I’m an Essex puss you see!
So I’m happy to hand over my crown,
To Lucy Lu who won’t let us down.
Please don’t forget to support Barbara and the team,
To help fulfill other Persians dreams.
Buy a calendar or a donation if you can,
It will all help London Persian Rescues plans.
Without the Rescue where would we be,
As all we Persians are so very special you see!”
Love & hugs, Lily, Glamour Puss xxx
