Guests enjoyed a drink on arrival, served by musclebound Dickybird Butlers, followed by a three-course lunch at the chic city centre hotel. The event, hosted by Radio City’s Claire Simmonsen, included a Q&A with Rebecca Jane of The Real Lady Detective Agency, hosted by Radio City’s Mick Coyle, a Fifty Shades of Grey theme fashion show - showcasing a daring collection from Ben Mak Designs and was rounded off with a rousing set from Britain’s Got Talent contestant Edward Reid.
One lucky winner won a Carita Gold pamper day for two at the Spa@Suites Hotel. Guests received a signed book ‘The Real Lady Detective Agency’ along with cup cakes from Laura’s Little Bakery.
The lunch raised £19,000 for Radio City’s Cash for Kids and was match-funded by Barclays.
The event was organised by Carolyn Hughes in association with Radio City’s Cash for Kids. Carolyn said: ‘The ladies, and a few brave men, loved our Fifty Shades lunch and we are delighted that we managed to raise a fantastic sum of money for Cash for Kids.’
