ollie and fred at The Christie charity afternoon tea

On the 28th February I attended a fantastic charity afternoon tea event at Hotel Gotham in aid of The Christie Hospital in Manchester.

We were treated to performances by the amazing Victoria Ekanoye and a live catwalk show by Manchester based fashion designer Zeynep Kartal. Former footballer Joe Thompson gave a very inspiring speech about his cancer story and his decision to retire from professional football.

Aisha Kamani took part in the fashion show and helped raise thousands of pounds by auctioning off a collection of gorgeous limited edition t-shirts which she designed especially for the occasion.

The afternoon was hosted by Hits Radio presenter Mike Toolan, and we enjoyed musical performances from The Chanteuse Lucy Hope, Jake Owen and Matthew Hines.

The event was organised by the lovely Lisa Forshaw and Laura Stubbs from Real PR - thank you for an amazing afternoon ladies!
