Helping raise vital funds for The Christie Charity

6 Mar

I’m incredibly proud to have been involved in two prestigious events now with the amazing Christie Charity in Manchester. For those that are not aware of the work that they do, I would urge you to take a look at their website. They raise vital funds to support The Christie Hospital, the largest Cancer centre in Europe, last year raising over £13 million.

In October 2013, stars from the showbiz & sporting worlds attended the first of these glamorous events at The Point at Emirates Old Trafford, raising over £120,000 for The Christie.

There were 60 winning golden tickets hidden amongst the 400 bars I created, each one individually numbered & corresponding with an AMAZING prize! The chocolate ‘raffle’ bars were sold for £20 I believe & for those not lucky enough to find a golden ticket, they did get to enjoy a scrummy bar of chocolate!

In February 2014,  I was approached by JDSports  to create branded chocolate bars for their Diamond Ball in aid of the Christie Charity. All 430 bars were individually numbered on the outer wrapper & again each had a prize that had to be collected on presentation of the numbered wrapper.

The artwork reflected the ‘diamond’ design used on all invitations, programmes, menus etc & again featured logos of both JD Sports & The Christie. Such a striking finished bar with the cellophane gift sleeves for this occasion, raising funds specifically for a new teenage cancer unit.

I’ve obviously played only a very small part in a massive operation, but to see the celebrities attending, watch the excitement on Twitter when golden tickets were being won, and reading the tweets of people having fun was brilliant! I hope they all loved their chocolate bars 🙂

Most importantly of all there were HUGE amounts of money raised on both evenings & I’m proud to have played a small role in helping that happen.
