Staggering amount raised for local kids charity at glitzy ball
Fundraising supremo’s Mandy Molby, Claire Gallagher and Trudi Brook hosted their annual charity Ball on Saturday night in aid of Radio City’s Cash for Kids.
The fun-packed evening, held at Thornton Hall Hotel left guests stunned and thrilled when the grand total of £104,000 was announced.
Radio City Presenter and comedian, Peter Price hosted the glamorous affair which was sponsored by Durastic Flooring and Decking, Hallmark Jewellers, Barclays and Barclaycard. Comedian John Martin entertained the guests, before DJ Charlie C spun some dancefloor fillers to round the night off. The new Milk Tray Man, local Firefighter Patrick McBride was also on hand with chocolates for the ladies.
Liverpool Legend Jan Molby and Radio City’s Claire Simmo assisted with Pete Price with the auction and prizes included:- a 7 night holiday in the Maldives, Champions League final tickets, tickets and ‘meet and greet’ for Rebecca Ferguson’s sold out concert at the Philharmonic Hall, an Emmerdale Tour organised by Gillian Kearney, and as always the football memorabilia once again proved very popular.
Cash for Kids Ambassador, Mandy Molby said “Claire, Trudi and I are completely overwhelmed by the generosity of the guests who came to our Ball. Never in our wildest dreams, in the current economic climate did we dare to dream we would raise in excess of £100,000. This money will literally change lives for so many disadvantaged children in our area and we cannot thank all those who came along, sponsored the event, donated prizes or bought raffle tickets enough for their support”
Fundraising Manager for Radio City’s Cash for Kids, Carole Clare said “This achievement by our Ambassadors is a remarkable testament to their commitment to help others less fortunate than themselves. They work tirelessly all year round to support Cash for Kids and we would not be in a position to help so many disadvantaged children without their phenomenal support”
