Bill Turnbull & Annabel Tiffin host Ladies Lunch for The Christie
BBC presenters Bill Turnbull and Annabel Tiffin are hosting a spectacular and stylish ‘Ladies Lunch’ to raise money for cancer patients at The Christie, the specialist cancer centre in Manchester.
Set in the Cheshire countryside with views over the Mere Lake, the lavish event takes place on Thursday 23rd May at The Mere Golf Resort and Spa in Knutsford from 12.30pm. It also includes special guest appearances from Channel 4’s ‘Ten Years Younger’ host and stylist Nicky Hambleton-Jones, classical chart toppers Blake, and an outstanding musical performance from ‘The Girl with the Golden Harp’, Royal harpist Claire Jones.
BBC Breakfast presenter Bill Turnbull said; “It is my pleasure to host this event for The Christie charity which is raising money to help cancer patients.
“Everyone who attends can be assured of a wonderful afternoon and Annabel and I will be delighted to play our part by interviewing the special guests.”
BBC North West Tonight anchor Annabel Tiffin added; “I’m so proud to be co-hosting this Ladies Lunch with Bill.
“Having worked in the North West for a number of years, I’m well aware of the fantastic work The Christie does for cancer patients in our region.”
The Christie charity’s Ladies Lunch is part of The Christie’s unique partnership with BBC Radio Manchester and every penny raised will go towards supporting a mobile chemotherapy unit, which will bring Christie care closer to patients’ homes.
Attendees will be treated to an afternoon of luxury kicking off with a delicious three-course lunch, indulgent treats and fabulous entertainment. There will be demonstrations of reflexology and aromatherapy and the opportunity of massages as well as image, hair and make-up consultations.
Chief Executive at The Christie, Caroline Shaw, said; “Huge thanks to Bill and Annabel and all our special guests for supporting this occasion. This Ladies Lunch will give our guests the opportunity to enjoy a fabulous lunch and be pampered for the day.
“Making our cancer patients feel extra special is part of what we do here every day at The Christie and money raised for our charity means that we can go the extra mile in looking after them at a time they need it most.
“I hope as many of you as possible will join us at this spectacular event in aid of our new mobile chemotherapy unit, which will bring first class Christie care closer to patients’ homes.”
Along with a few extra-special surprises on the day, there will also be a raffle and money-can’t-buy prizes up for grabs in the auction.
