James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer Curry Night a Huge Success

What a great evening we all had last night at “Le Raj” in Epsom Downs. The food was fantastic, the staff were excellent and I can’t believe that Enam Ali gave all of this for free! which meant all the money raised went to the Fund directly.

I cant remember the exact total that Chris Tarrant and Shane Richie raised in the auction at the end of the meal but they’re clearly used to doing this kind of stuff and used all their guile to eek out every last penny from the diners. The bids went way beyond my wallet capacity.

So, was a Chris Tarrant the same person off screen as he is on screen? I asked if he minded me taking a photo, you make up your own minds……

One of the bids got very confusing, it started as “A days archery with James Whale and a few of his friends” and ended up as (and this is my best guess) “A day with Shane Richie dressed as Robin Hood in the forest with the person bidding dressed, (or not), as Lady Godiva on horseback”. Anyway money has changed hands now, promises have been made and photographers are on standby, so good luck with that one Sandy! And let’s hope it’s a warm day!

As usual the James Whale Fund team did an excellent job of pulling this all together, they do it with such ease now it all seems second nature, although I’m sure Sarah would say something different.

Great night out! Thanks.

All the money raised goes towards helping fund initiatives for Kidney Cancer such as the Nurses Training Courses and the Patient Day on the 17th November
