Tony Hadley to host ladies’ lunch in aid of children’s charity

23 June 2015

Women in Kent are in for a treat with a new ladies’ lunch with Tony Hadley, which is sure to hit the right note!

The event, in aid of Action Medical Research, will be held at The Mercure Hotel in Maidstone on Friday, 9 October, and the fun starts at midday when guests will enjoy a drinks reception followed by a two-course meal and live entertainment from Tony himself, as well as a raffle packed with incredible prizes.

The Spandau Ballet singer has been a supporter of the children’s charity since he took part in the charity’s trek to Peru in 2003. Since then, he has become an enthusiastic ambassador, giving sparkling performances at social events and continuing to take part in arduous treks to raise funds for the charity, as well as hosting the annual Tony Hadley Golf Classic.

Paula Ray, Action Medical Research’s Community Fundraising Manager for the region, says: “We’re delighted that Tony is hosting our new lunch event for the ladies of Kent for the first time – it’s the perfect chance to get together with the girls and let your hair down.

“There will be a chance to have a dance and to share a meal with like-minded women but it’s going to be popular, so I suggest you get in there quickly!”

If you want to spend a great afternoon with friends and raise money to help save and change children's lives, tickets priced at £45 are available from action.org.uk/kent-ladies-lunch-tony-hadley
