Sally Taylor, chair of The Breast Cancer Haven Development Board said, “We have been thrilled with the response we have received for this event. The general tickets were sold within 48 hours and we have a waiting list. We are so pleased to be able to offer these new tickets but they will disappear very quickly and so I would strongly recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.”

The Murray Parish Trust is a charity set up by David's friends, actress Sarah Parish and her husband, actor James Murray who founded the charity after they lost their first daughter Ella-Jayne to a congenital heart defect. It supports the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at University Hospital Southampton.

Sarah Parish said of the event: "We are so lucky to have such big names supporting this event and we will be doing everything we can to ensure that this will be a night to remember to raise as much funds as possible for these two incredible local charities."

David said, “I am thrilled to be able to help with this incredible event. As soon as my friend, actress, Sarah Parish asked, I was in! I will play my part in making sure this will be a night to remember for everyone who attends and for these two very important local charities.”
