I just had to write and tell you about a very special lunch and a very special gentleman named David.
As many of you will know QVC supports the Breast Cancer Care charity. Every October we have an on air special show dedicated to raising funds for the cause. The generosity people show is always incredibly heart warming.
Sometimes people become very creative and offer donations in exchange for all sorts of things from Dale Franklin's bow tie to a kiss from Charlie Brook! It's often the boys who get lots of attention but this year David evened the score for us girls!
David has been personally affected by breast cancer through close family and work colleagues, some of which sadly lost their battle with the disease, and so wanted to offer a fitting tribute to their memory with a substantial donation.
When he heard that someone called in to offer a donation for lunch with Anthony Heywood it gave him the idea to make a donation for lunch with either myself or Alison Keenan, his two favourite presenters! I was gobsmacked when I discovered a donation of £500 was made in exchange for our time.
Ali wished she could have joined us but had to help out on air due to presenter shortage..the show must go on, 17 hours live every day after all! Clare popped by and as she is another 'Dave fave' he was a very happy man.
In fact he said a perfect day of QVC viewing would be Clare in the morning, Ali in the middle and yours truly to finish off the day. David, you gave all three of us a massive confidence boost with your kind words!!
David's niece, Sarah, accompanied him to QVC for the afternoon. She is a keen crafter so enjoyed our studio tour and had some piccies on the crafting set. What a lovely lass and very clearly proud of her kind uncle.
Our guest of honour is a very talented man having won several trophies for ballroom dance and is also an accomplished musician and guess what, girls?
He is single! The matchmaker in me told him he needs to get out to those ballroom gatherings again as I think he'd have a dance partner in no time at all!
I just hope David and Sarah enjoyed their day with us as much as we at QVC loved having them visit.
David, you're one in a million. Thank you again for your generosity. You are an inspiration. I will never forget the lovely day we all shared and your kindness that made it happen.
Lots of love,
