Celebrity guests attending HIV and sexual health charity Terrence Higgins Trust’s The Supper Club event last Tuesday night helped to raise around £80,000 to support people living with HIV. Famous names attending a variety of exclusive London dinner parties included Cilla Black, Graham Norton, Rory Bremner, Russell Tovey, Sean Pertwee, Dan Gillespie Sells, Charlie Condou, Francis Barber, Ronni Ancona and MP Nick Herbert.
The Supper Club saw 45 first class dinner parties taking place simultaneously in some of London’s finest restaurants including Scott’s, Mr Chow, China Tang, J.Sheekey, Massimo and The Greenhouse, all donated free of charge for Terrence Higgins Trust.
After dinner, guests were chauffeured to a glamorous, cocktail-filled after party at Piccadilly’s Café De Paris, hosted by Coronation Street star Charlie Condou. Guests drank Honey Ryder and Passion Fruit Martini vodka cocktails sponsored by Belvedere and danced to entertainment from five-piece Camden indie disco outfit, Kentish Fire.
Genevieve Edwards, Terrence Higgins Trust’s Executive Director of Fundraising, said:“Thank you to everyone who made The Supper Club such a huge success, with the very finest food and drink London has to offer and a fabulous after party. Our supporters once again did us proud with a show-stopper of an event which has raised huge amounts of money to support people living with HIV.
“With World AIDS Day just round the corner it’s a vital time to raise awareness of HIV so we’re delighted so many of our guests turned out in force again last night to show their support for this cause.”
