Story

As an ambassador for 'The City Hospice' and avid supporter of this small local Cardiff charity, I have yet again felt compelled to try and raise funds in support of the good work they do. 

Please join us in the wonderful home of my Cardiff store, at the Morgan Quarter arcade for what promises to be a really fun evening. My good friend and fellow City Hospice Ambassador Spiro Borg from the renowned Spiro's Fine Dining Caterers has kindly agreed to fully support the event by putting together a lovely three course meal accompanied with matching wines that have been kindly donated by Nigel and Greg of Fine Wines Direct.  Heineken are supplying a great assortment of beers for everyone's enjoyment and Hensol Castle Distillery have kindly agreed to provide a G&T reception on arrival. 

The night will be fun packed, hosted throughout by ex Welsh rugby legend and BBC radio pundit Rupert Moon.

The magical marvel Bryan Gunton will be kicking the evening off with his card and magic tricks at the G&T reception, whilst the singing sensation James Williams entertains us with his soulful voice. Spiro's amazing team will then deliver a fine dining experience not to be missed. To top this we have a Q&A with Ex Welsh Captain, Ex British and Irish Lions and Wales very own Assistant Coach Rob Howley, this Q&A comes on the eve of the Welsh national rugby squad flying out to Switzerland for their intense World Cup training camp. Timothy Everest MBE is also joining us to discuss the exciting developments that are happening within his London based clothing brand, it's also the evening where I will launch to the world our very own shoe brand 'Christian James'. There will be various rugby, shoe and clothing items auctioned off, with every single penny we raise going directly to the charity. Spiro and I are funding this evening entirely, as we think a charity evening really should be a charity evening, with all proceeds going to the good cause.                   

This is strictly an invite only event with many local business owners or senior directors in attendance, so you are sure to know plenty of good people in the room. 

The evening will continue at The Flying High cocktail bar just a minutes walk away on St Mary Street, where you can drink and socialise the evening away.
