A night of inspiration and celebration took place for Paul Strank Charitable Trust’s Summer Party at Mint Leaf, Haymarket.
Hosted by Christopher Biggins, one of the Trust’s ambassadors, the star-studded event was attended by a whole host of famous faces, from Gok Wan, Lydia Bright, Talulah-Eve Brown and Jessica Wright to Josh Parkinson, Liz McClarnon, Zara Holland, Stavros Flatley and Raef Bjayou, to name a few.
Guests enjoyed drinks from Absolute and Strassen Cidre with a special performance from Kym Mazelle who sang classic hits ‘young hearts run free’ and ‘was that all it was.’’ Attendees also enjoyed music from Josh Parkinson.
EastEnders’ Danny-Boy Hatchard was announced as this year’s official ambassador for the charity, and the party which was kindly sponsored by long-term supporters Burge & Gunson and Chemflow Environmental, and The Charles Group, raised money for The Paul Strank Charitable Trust, a Wimbledon-based Grant-making Charity.
Paul Strank commented: “All the funds raised from our annual summer party benefit our Charitable Trust – a grant making charity providing vital funding and support to local causes. We want to thank everyone for their support this evening, we have had a phenomenal turnout. Our focus has always been on the most disadvantaged in our community with a particular emphasis on helping children in need and their families.”
Through their drive and passion for helping others, it is estimated that Paul and Irene Strank have raised, donated or sponsored more than £3M for charity and their community over the past 30 years with the Paul Strank Charitable Trust has now been set up enable their fundraising to climb to new heights.
The Paul Strank Charitable Trust also supports local charities including Shooting Star Chase Children’s Hospice, Children in Need, AFC Wimbledon Foundation, Croygas Pirates Mixed Pan Disability Youth Football Team among other great local causes.
