The life and times of a happy go lucky blogger in London
Breast Cancer Care – The Show
Categories: lifestyle, London


Yes, this week has been a mega one. So Wednesday night I was out again. Off to the Grovesnor House Hotel in the pouring rain and smuggled from taxi to the safety of the reception beneath umbrellas, we launched ourselves on the evening. Bumping into Tara Palmer Tompkinson, spotting Ginger Spice, and stars from Strictly Come Dancing, the stage was set for a night of fluffy glamour.

While there was a champagne reception, a wonderful dinner and amazing speeches, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house at one point. Gail Porter, Cherie Blair, Vanessa Feltz – all pilloried in the tabloid media – but adored by the guests, were on hand to celebrate these amazing women and men and share their admiration for these wonderful people. I have to salute Gail Porter – she spoke very well and became a little bit tearful as she’d recently lost her own Mother to this terrible disease.

Each of the models has experienced breast cancer, something we all as women (and men) are aware may affect our lives in some way. There were cheers all night, many of the tables were taken up by friends and families of the models. What a great thing to do eh?


Don’t they look great on the cat walk? They all looked and felt fabulous. I was in awe. And of course a little wide-eyed and legless by the end of the night. For a little ‘joke’ I thought we should all get our photo taken on the red carpet where the celebs sashay at the start of the night. What started out as just a few of us ended up in a merry, happy crowd – so you fabulous ladies thanks for the photo and I hope you don’t mind me sticking it on my blog, but it’s just too fabulous not to!

    It was an amazing night. My friend Amanda was one of the models, second left on your photo.
    I love your celeb-style photo. We thought about doing that at the end of the night, but I had cried so much I had no make-up left on my face – it was all left on the napkin back at the table!

      Oh my – I wish I’d known you were there! It was so much fun and at times a bit of a struggle as my own Mother died from breast cancer so I felt a bit mugged that I couldn’t celebrate her still being her but it was the speech from the BCC lady that made it for me. I know exactly how you feel – I’m signing up to do the Race for Life again, going to try and do a 10k this time, it’s these positive events that give us all hope and achievement in the face of loss, thanks for your lovely comment x
