I was at the grand ball of Breast Cancer Care last night and it was quite an occasion. I was outside in Park Lane, the main entrance to the Grosvenor hotel, in my kilt clutching an invitation and thinking "who would have thought I'd be going to such a swanky event"?
This year it was very personal to us, as Ali and Amica have both been through their own personal breast cancer journeys. Ali was due to make a speech, which we all knew would be very difficult for her.
Here's a picture above, to show you how gorgeous our girls looked as they posed with Lisa Snowdon in front of a wall of photographers!
Ali delivered her very personal speech beautifully and, for the first time in all the years I have been going to the BCC event, she received a standing ovation from the audience of about 1,000 people! We were very proud of Ali and she showed us how strong she is.
Our big breast cancer care event is on Wednesday 12th starting at 19.00 and I will be hosting it with Debbie Greenwood. We will probably be able to show some of Ali's speech then and she's popping in for a bit too. I hope you'll join us for three hours of fun and shop for some great things all at BCC prices.
This year I hope we'll raise half a million pounds!!
