Parky's annual fundraiser brings children's hospice a step nearer

 

Chris Evans, Fiona Devine and Sir Michael Parkinson
It is not every day you get the chance to spend time in Amy Winehouse's recording studio or drive one of breakfast radio star Chris Evans' famous cars.

These were just two of the mouth-watering auction 'prizes' available at a cabaret evening run by Sir Michael Parkinson in aid of the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service charity.

Parky is patron of the charity started by Dedworth couple John and Fiona Devine in memory of their son, which is raising money to build a children's hospice near Maidenhead.

The annual cabaret evening is now in its seventh year and raised £92,000 at the Wentworth Club on Saturday.

Special guests included radio DJ and TV presenter Chris Evans and Amy Winehouse's dad Mitch, who presented those two mouth-watering prizes.

Guests enjoyed a sumptuous three course meal before being entertained by legendary composer and musical director Laurie Holloway - who happens to be a neighbour of Parky's - and singer Kenny Lynch OBE.
