The Cord Club returns in record-breaking style
Back to overview
Following rave reviews of our 2017 event, our guests were delighted to return to the multifaceted and multi-award-winning venue, M. Once again, we were taken on an exclusive sensory dining experience, created exclusively for The Cord Club, all whilst raising vital funds for our spinal cord research portfolio.
On arrival guests were greeted with Chapel Down sparkling wine, Curious Brew beer and a selection of delectable cocktails and canapés before ‘The Fellas’, seven finely groomed gents, served up the perfect blend of soul, funk and hip-hop thump, getting the party started early.
Our host for the evening, Simon Lazenby, SKY SPORTS F1 lead, welcomed guests and introduced Ambassadors, Friends and Executive Chef Mike Reid to the stage.Guest’s mouths watered as they enjoyed an eclectic menu with complementing wines.
In between courses they were treated to a spicy surprise when the singer was revealed to be none other than Melanie C!
Following her incredible performance, guests dug deep and donated generously in the Live and Silent Auctions helping us to raise vital funds for our cause.
Over desert and espresso martinis, supporters in the room were further humbled when Simon interviewed long-standing supporter and Friend of Wings for Life, Keith Jansz. Esteemed mouth painter, Keith painted an exquisite piece for our raffle, ‘Reclining Figure’.
A truly unbelievable sum of £225,000 was raised during the evening of which we are incredibly grateful for. We would like to take this opportunity to, once again, thank you all for your support in helping us find a cure for spinal cord injury.
