Davina McCall hosts live ‘Night In’ for Sussex children’s charity
TV presenter Davina McCall will be hosting a very special online ‘Night In’ on Tuesday November 24 to help support Horsham-based children’s charity Action Medical Research.
The charity funds vital medical research to help sick babies and children, and has seen many events cancelled or postponed this year due to the current covid crisis – including one of its largest annual fundraisers, Dine with Davina.
Dine with Davina usually attracts around 450 guests and raises more than £50,000. This year the charity will instead be running the new virtual Davina’s Night In to help raise much-needed funds and entertain during this second lockdown. It’s hoped that those who usually attend in person, and many more from across Sussex, will join in online.
Davina McCall has been supporting the charity for many years, having first been introduced by her late granny ‘Pippy’, who was a local fundraiser.
Ruth Dean, organiser of Davina’s Night In, says: “We are so grateful to Davina for hosting this special event and are really looking forward to the evening, which will feature the ex-Mr England, Jordan Williams, as well as some other special guests. It will be a great way to hear from the amazing Davina from the comfort of your own home, all while helping to raise money for vital medical research.”
Davina’s Night In will live stream from 8pm on Tuesday November 24 and will be an evening of conversation and entertainment. As well as hearing about what Davina has been up to lately, there are some exciting ways to support the charity – with a fabulous fundraising auction and the chance to win some amazing prizes in the Star Prize Draw, including a designer handbag of your choice.
Action Medical Research is a UK-wide children’s charity which funds desperately needed research to tackle diseases that can devastate the lives of children. It has been funding medical breakthroughs since it began in 1952, including helping to introduce the first polio vaccines in the UK, developing the use of ultrasound in pregnancy and testing the rubella vaccine. The charity is now driving forward research to help protect children in the fight against COVID-19.
