Capita's talent acquisition business supports charity close to its heart
Hosted by CHUF patron Graham Wylie, the event was attended by a host of celebrities including fellow patrons Alan Shearer and Ant and Dec as well as professional golfer Lee Westwood, and stars from sport and screen, Clare Balding, Anton du Beke, Jeremy Kyle and Jonathan Edwards, to name but a few.
Glen Hall, founder of Write Research, said, “I’m very pleased that Write Research could be there to support what is an incredibly important North East charity. It was a very humbling evening with people who really put life into context.”
A gala dinner at the Marriott Hotel in Gosforth rounded-off the day, which raised £230,000 for the Children’s Heart Unit at the Freeman Hospital – a Centre for Excellence in the UK – making this event the biggest single fund raiser in the North East.
