Getting down at The Dock
Cheshire Life: January 2019 69
Liverpool PR consultant Carolyn Hughes hosted her 12th annual Christmas lunch at Gusto on the Albert Dock. The glamorous occasion was supported by over 250 movers and shakers. Party-goers enjoyed drinks on arrival and a superb three-course lunch before an afternoon of entertainment, hosted by Lindzi Germain. A DJ and saxophonist set the mood, followed by a rousing set from Dixie Daye and Chantel Coleman, before local band ‘FIRE’ performed party dancefloor fillers. There was an appearance from ‘The Grinch’ (Chris Farley) and a return visit for the ‘Elf on the Shelf’ (Jay Hynd). It was supported by Rebecca Ferguson and Liz Mcclarnon, along with actress Gillian Kearney and reality TV stars Danielle Lloyd and Dawn Ward. An amazing £23,000 was raised for Radio City’s Cash for Kids.
