Belle of the Ball….

coop-charity-ballThe great and the good gathered in Manchester last night for the Co-operative’s Dinner of Dreams Charity Ball.

The evening which was attended by HRH Princess Anne as well as by Freeth Cartwright’s Ian Tempest, Richard Holmes, Michelle Upton, Gillian Pelham and myself (albeit perhaps with not quite as much fanfare as Her Royal Highness) and was compered by Rob Brydon was great fun but more importantly took the Co-operative Group’s donations to its charity of the year, The Carers Trust, to over £5 million.

The Carers Trust is a charity dedicated to improving support, services and recognition for anyone living with the challenges of caring for a family member or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems. Their vision is to change the lives of all carers in the UK for the better.

Congratulations to everyone at the Co-operative for raising a phenomenal amount of money for such a well deserving cause.
