What a Night! Supporting Paul Strank Roofing’s Charity Gala Dinner
On 15 September the LSPC team attended Paul Strank Roofing's Annual Charity Gala Dinner at a private club in Wandsworth. The event raised over £50,000 in aid of OneLife UK and Shooting Star Chase which help sick and disadvantaged youngsters in South-West London.
Once Councillor Stephen Alambritis, leader of Merton Council, had welcomed guests, comedian Tim Vine entertained with great gags followed by Beverley Knight MBE singing classic tracks which got everyone dancing. Other celebrities and dignitaries whose presence and support made the occasion so special included patron and actress Brooke Kinsella MBE, Dragon Den's Theo Paphitis, Coronation Street's Ryan Thomas, Emmerdale's Adam Thomas, Sally and Stephen Hammond MP and the Mayor of Merton, Councillor David Williams. To end the evening in an unforgettable way, the squad from AFC Wimbledon gave a rather brave, and in the end, bare performance of the Full Monty!
