Cardiff has been abuzz, with news that Ambassadors Chris Macnamara and Spiro Borg have raised £58,000 for City Hospice at their annual Beaujolais Day.
This year’s Brogue goes Beaujolais event featured a glamorous drink reception, a delicious three course menu and fabulous live entertainment. Businesses from across South East Wales were there to enjoy this annual charity event in aid of Cardiff’s local hospice. Held at Cornerstone, the incredible Beaujolais Day has become the highlight of the Cardiff calendar, with over 160 in attendance.
Former Wales international rugby union player, Rupert Moon was also on hand to compere at the event, and encourage guests to dig deep in support of the charity for the auction. With auction prizes such as dinner at The Ivy, a Helicopter ride for two and Golf at the Celtic Manor, guests were treated to an incredible selection of prizes to bid on.
The applause almost lifted the roof, when Chris and Spiro announced that over £53,000 had been raised for the charity. Later rising to over £58,000.
Every penny donated and raised at this event benefits City Hospice thanks to the generosity of Chris and Spiro.
Liz Andrews, City Hospice’s Chief Executive said;
“What an incredible event, and such a fantastic amount raised. To fund a day of nursing care delivered by one of the exceptional City Hospice, Clinical Nurse Specialists costs £150. That day could mean the world to a family faced with a terminal illness. Chris and Spiro through their hard work and generosity have funded over 370 days of nursing care. This is outstanding.”
We would like to thank everyone who attended Beaujolais Day, donated, bid in the auction and supported this event. With special thanks to print sponsors, Harlequin Print. And of course a huge thank you to our Ambassadors, Chris Macnamara and Spiro Borg.
