Stars will be out to add shine to fun day in town
THE stars are coming out to support a fun charity day.
The Utopia restaurant and wine bar in Bank Street, Ashford, is hosting the event that aims to inject some Christmas cheer into Ashford on Sunday, December 20 while raising funds for the Salvation Army and Help for Heroes.
Radio station kmfm, Ball Contractors and the Kent Partnership will be supporting the event that starts at 3pm on the patio next to Utopia, opposite Debenhams.
Celebrities expected to attend include Olympic gold medal winning cyclist Jamie Staff, former England footballer Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock, Gillingham captain Barry Fuller, local golfing legend Ben Barham and of course Father Christmas.
There will be a raffle to raise money for Help for Heroes with the first prize of a new fitted bathroom worth £1,000 donated by Ball Contractors, a tour of the Ashford kmfm studio and other prizes.
kmfm’s Kirstyn Read, John ‘Webbo’ Webster and Adam Dowling will be hosting the event which also features face painting, mulled wine and mince pies with music from the Salvation Army band and local school choirs.
There will also be a Wii Sport Competition and around 5pm the Queen Street Christmas tree lights will be switched on.
There will be a licensed bar open from noon and food will be available throughout the day.
Evening entertainment will be kicking off at approximately 7.30pm with a Dusty’s Reunion Party hosted by Webbo.
