Alistair McGowan and host of celebrities help raise over £7,000 for children’s charity
More than 450 people attended The Children’s Trust Christmas Concert at Cadogan Hall in London on Monday 12 December, raising over £7,000 for children with brain injury.
Alistair McGowan, award-winning impressionist, comedian and actor was the highlight of the evening, delivering a series of entertaining impressions, followed by a piano performance.
Charity Ambassador and journalist and broadcaster Nicholas Owen hosted the event, which included classical Christmas music sung by Putney High School and a surprise celebrity guest reading from TV and radio presenter Jenni Falconer. Conductor Crispin Ward led performers such as soprano Ana-Maria Rincon and the Amici Ensemble, and special guest, reigning recorder virtuoso, Piers Adams of Red Priest delivered a powerful musical experience.
Dalton Leong, Chief Executive of The Children’s Trust, said: “It was a wonderful evening with great talent on show. We truly appreciate the commitment of the performers and celebrity support, all of whom kindly donated their time to help raise profile and funds for children with brain injury.”
