Sir Trevor Macdonald charms local residents at a Charity Event in Kensington

Sir Trevor Maconald recently opened the ‘Curtain’s Up’ Charity Event in Kensington.  Delighting residents he happily posed with them and spent time chatting with actors and stallholders alike.  Actors from Bad Girls, Casualty, Sharpe, Coronation Street and others all took part in this event, raising money for the Alzheimer’s Society and SANDS (Stillborn and Neonatal Death Charity).  Sir Trevor gave a moving speech, and later in the day Susan Hampshire drew the raffle.  Refreshments were prepared by Master Chef Semi-Finalist Julia Gray.  The event was an opportunity for actors to donate their collectables with stalls offering handbags, crafts, jewellery and clothes.  The event raised £900 for the Alzheimer’s Society and £400 for SANDS.  Congratulations to the organisers and those who took part in the day’s event.
