The 21st of September saw Real Housewives of Cheshire star Seema Malhotra team up with business man Chris Healing & Menagerie Restaurant to raise over £27,000.00 for those directly affected by the Manchester Terror Attacks.
8 year old Lily Harrison who was injured in the attacks attended the fundraiser as guest of honour. Later in the evening Lily who was wearing her Ariana Grande inspired kitten ears released 200 pink balloons into the night sky on the evening in memory of all those lost in the tragedy.
The event at Menagerie, was hosted by Heart FM’s Lorna Bancroft and Capital FM Breakfast’s Rachel Burke-Davies and was attended by over 400 guests. The evening kicked off with a Forever Unique fashion show, aerial acrobats & fire breathers and was followed by an auction hosted by Capital Breakfast’s Rob Ellis and a live performance by X Factor & I’m a Celebrity star Jake Quickenden who serenaded Lily from the catwalk where he performed.
During the live auction Boxer Ricky Hatton took to the stage to present his own signed gloves to the highest bidder whilst Real Housewives of Cheshire Star Stacey Forsey, who had auctioned a piece of her art for the charity, also bid and won a dress for her mother who was also in attendance. Seema surprised fellow fundraiser Chris on the evening with a donation of £5000.00 from Forever Unique upping the total amount raised and smashing the original £20,000.00 fundraising target.
