Press release

Grab your chance to Dine with Davina McCall

9 October 2012

Action Medical Research is proud to present Dine with Davina – sponsored by NEXT on Friday 9 November 2012 at the Grand Harbour Hotel.

To help celebrate our 60th anniversary we would like to invite ladies to enjoy a special luncheon hosted by Davina McCall.

Davina says: ''I'm very excited to be hosting the sixth Dine with Davina and can't believe we have already raised over £165,000 to help support Action Medical Research - a charity very close to my heart. Ladies who are thinking about coming along, I promise you will love this event - there is lots of laughter, chat and always brilliant entertainment.
I do hope you will be able to join us!''

Celebrations will begin with a drinks reception and photo opportunity with Davina at 12 noon followed by a three course lunch with wine. Radio Wave 105 once again shows their support as we welcome Andy Jackson as our MC for the day.

The charity auction will be hosted by BBC’s John Cameron and the day will draw to a close at 5pm after a floorfilling performance by The FABBAGIRLS, who are quite simply the best Abba tribute band in the business. All guests will receive a gift and one lucky winner from each table will win a special prize donated by NEXT.

Diamond Dine with Davina will be extra special this year with plenty of sparkles and special prizes to be won including a beautiful piece of diamond jewellery by Parkhouse Jewellers, Southampton. All proceeds from the day will support vital medical research to help sick babies, children with disabilities and those suffering from rare diseases.

The last remaining tickets are available for £75 so don’t miss out, contact your girlfriends and start making plans.

Action Medical Research - the leading UK-wide medical research charity dedicated to helping babies and children - is celebrating 60 years of vital research in 2012. We’ve been funding medical breakthroughs since we began in 1952 and have spent more than £100 million on research that has helped save thousands of children’s lives and changed many more. Today, we continue to find and fund the very best medical research to help stop the suffering of babies and children caused by disease and disability. We want to make a difference in:

• tackling premature birth and treating sick and vulnerable babies
• helping children affected by disability, disabling conditions and infections
• targeting rare diseases that together severely affect many forgotten children.

But there is still so much more to do. Make 2012 a special year and help fund more life-changing research for some of the UK’s sickest babies and children.
