Celebs raise funds for THT at supper club
An ecelectic bunch of names turned out for this year’s Terrence Higgins Trust Supper Club fundraiser.
Actor Richard Wilson, his One Foot In The Grave co-star Angus Deayton, TV presenters Christian Jessen and Kristian Digby and a woman who used to go out with a former England manager, Nancy Dell’Olio, were all in attendance.
The annual event saw 45 chic dinner parties taking place simultaneously in the capital’s best restaurants and private homes.
After dinner, guests were chauffeur driven to a fabulous party at Café de Paris for champagne and delicious cocktails from Camitz Sparkling Vodka – the exceptionally smooth new Super Premium Swedish vodka. Guests were also treated to exclusive performances by Sophie Ellis-Bextor and DJ Danny Rampling.
£70,000 was raised.
Restaurants and caterers who took part in this year’s Supper Club included:
Nobu Berkeley St, Hakkasan, Nahm, Benares, Rhodes W1, Cecconi’s, China Tang, and Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester and Annie Fryer Catering, Stem London, William Norris & Company. All the restaurants and caterers involved in the Supper Club have donated their services free of charge to raise funds for THT.
Debbie Holmes, Director of Fundraising at Terrence Higgins Trust said “We’ve had fantastic support for the Supper Club this year. 600 guests, 45 dinners, and THT supporters Sophie Ellis Bextor and Danny Rampling helped make it an amazing night.
