Over £23K raised for local kids at annual celeb filled Christmas lunch


PR Supremo Carolyn Hughes hosted her annual CHPR Charity Christmas Lunch yesterday at GUSTO Albert Dock.

The 12th annual glamorous lunch has become the hottest festive tickets in town, supported by over 250 of Liverpool’s glitterati,  movers and shakers.

The day was hosted by The Guide Liverpool’s Lindzi Germaine and entertainment included performances from a DJ and Saxophonist, followed by a rousing set from dynamic duo Dixie Daye and Chantel Coleman, before FIRE rounded the afternoon off with a collection of party floor fillers.

The event raised  over  £23,000 for Radio City’s Cash for Kids and was supported by Rebecca Ferguson, Liz McLarnon, Danielle Lloyd, Gillian Kearney and RHOC Dawn Ward. Our very own Jay Hynd was transformed into an elf for the ‘Selfie with an Elfie’ competition whilst Chris Farley took his role as The Grinch perfectly.

Everton Football Club’s Darren Griffiths showcased his exceptional auctioneering skills, with some amazing prizes including:-  VIP Hospitality packages for Take That and Bon Jovi courtesy of LFC,  signed Liverpool shirt and signed boots from Everton and England goal keeper Jordan Pickford, plus a dining experience at Aiden Byrne’s new MCR restaurant in Manchester.
