Last night I took a break from the gruelling AV campaign to join the Mayor of Redbridge, Cllr Jim O'Shea at his charity ball, hosted by the Prince Regent Hotel.
A well attended dinner was followed by a raffle and an auction to raise money for Redbridge Alzheimer's Society and The Dream Factory. The event was kindly sponsored by Barclays, Waitrose, Skanska, Hills of Woodford and Broadway Music & Vision. There were no speeches but I was asked to propose the Royal Toast - a real privilege after yesterday's wedding!
We were also joined by the Mayor of Tower Hamlets (pictured), actress Vicki Michelle from 'Allo 'Allo and boxing champion Colin Macmillan. Great to have local celebrities offering their support.
