Strut­ting their stuff gen­er­ates al­most £7,000

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A COCK­TAIL ball at Pinewood Stu­dios raised nearly £7,000 for a lead­ing can­cer char­ity.

The Macmil­lan char­ity’s Ger­rards Cross and dis­trict fundrais­ing com­mit­tee or­gan­ised the event at Heather­den Hall, called ‘Cock­tails, Canapes and Cat­walk with Can­dle­light’.

Guests ate canapes made by Miche­lin-starred chef Scott McRae and en­joyed a Macmil­lan mar­ket­place with spe­cially se­lected stall­hold­ers and a cat­walk which show­cased col­lec­tions from world­wide de­sign­ers, be­fore an auc­tion by Ger­rards Cross es­tate agent, Trevor Kent.

The com­mit­tee cel­e­brates its 21st an­niver­sary this year and has raised more than £567,000 since 1994.

Liz King, chair­man the com­mit­tee, said: “It costs Macmil­lan £27 per hour to fund a Macmil­lan nurse, who will spend that valu­able hour with pa­tients, their fam­i­lies and their car­ers and tonight

EYES FRONT: At­ten­dees line the cat­walk we have funded 259 of cat­walk steps for weeks those hours.
