Touching Lives - April 2017
Davina’s decade of fundraising
Our most recent Dine with Davina function was an extra special one. As well as marking the 10th anniversary of this popular event, we were delighted to honour our wonderful host Davina McCall for helping us raise a fantastic £500,000 over the last 10 years.
She’s one of the UK’s busiest and most popular TV personalities and a mum of three but Davina still finds time to continue the family tradition of supporting Action – she was introduced to our work by her granny when she was just nine!
Each year she hosts her Big Sussex Bike Ride in June, as well as Dine with Davina in Hampshire in the autumn. These two events combined have now raised half a million pounds – a huge contribution to help fund life-changing medical research for children.
And if that’s not enough, Davina is also training to do the Great North Run for us later this year!
Thank you so much Davina!
