CELEBRITY SUPPORT FOR RESEARCH INTO AGEING GALA DINNER

500 representatives from the North West’s top businesses are coming together to lend their support to Research into Ageing (part of Help the Aged) at a special charity gala dinner hosted by The David McLean Group in aid of Research into Ageing’s One for All Appeal.

Liverpool comedian Willy Miller is the evening’s host and he will be joined by Green Goddess Diana Moran and One Foot in the Grave’s Mrs Warboys, Doreen Mantle.

An evening of glitz and glamour awaits the audience, along with an auction of money-can’t-buy prizes donated by TV and sporting stars including Ant and Dec, Stephen Fry, the England Rugby team, and some of the region’s top sporting clubs and venues. Prizes include football and rugby tickets, a brewery tour for 25 people, an Ant and Dec signed Pop Idol script, Harry Potter memorabilia and a rugby ball signed by the England Rugby team.

The One for All Appeal is The David McLean Group’s Charity of the Year and aims to raise £1 million to fund research fellowships across the North West.

The gala dinner will take place at St George’s Hall, Liverpool on Saturday 17 April 2004. 

All proceeds from the evening will go to Research into Ageing’s One for All Appeal.

GABBY IS ON THE BALL

TV PRESENTER Gabby Logan today launched a new community initiative that has pledged to grant thousands of pounds worth of wishes for Southport community groups. 

Gabby spread a little “fairy” magic as she kicked off the WishSprite Foundation’s campaign – a charitable cause that supports communities throughout the area and improve the quality of life via local schemes. 

Southport-based deserving groups, organizations, educational establishments and charities will be helped by the ‘delivery of wishes’ that may grant a cash sum worth between £500 and £5000 in the form of a service, equipment or product. {continued....}

{continued....} The scheme is particularly aimed at projects that enable people to take part in art, sport, heritage and community activities, as well as projects that promote the environment and health in the local community.

Having previously supported a number of charities for the homeless and school-based sports initiatives, Gabby Logan is committed to championing grass-root community schemes that help to provide additional opportunities for people. 

She said:- “This is a fantastic opportunity for groups and organisations to get the extra boost they need to really get their projects off the ground and turn dreams into reality. 

I’m delighted to be able to support this scheme, which is set to benefit so many people throughout Southport.” 

People can apply for a WishSprite Foundation Community Grant any time up to 31 December, so if you know of a wish that should come true, they’d like to hear from you.
