A night to remember
Last night Wings for Life UK hosted The Cord Club - an evening of extraordinary entertainment and fine dining at London’s One Marylebone. Former Formula One driver David Coulthard and Formula One development driver Susie Wolff, both Wings for Life ambassadors, entertained a star-studded crowd of over 200 at what was the official launch of the Wings for Life brand in the UK.
Stars in their masses flocked to the beautiful venue to show their support for Wings for Life and together guests raised 215,000 Euro for spinal cord injury research. A whole host of glamorous guests walked the red carpet, including Team GB’s Dai Greene, Carol Vorderman and Bernie Ecclestone. Amongst the celebrity line-up was Jessie Ware who wowed her audience with a breath-taking live performance of some of her world-famous tracks.
The unbelievable and unique talent of mouth artist Keith Jansz inspired guests at The Cord Club last night as he painted live at the event. Jansz, who is a member of the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists (MFPA), lost the use of his hands and legs in a tragic road accident in 1995, and was left paralysed from the neck down. Some of Jansz’s remarkable work was last night donated to the silent auction, sitting alongside an array of dazzling prizes.
Former Formula One driver and Wings for Life ambassador David Coulthard said: “I’m honoured to have co-hosted The Cord Club alongside Susie Wolff. We’re absolutely thrilled with this fundraising total and our thanks goes to everyone who donated on the night”
We’d like to thank everyone who helped to make The Cord Club such a huge success.
