Celebrity Luncheon with Valerie Singleton
Celebrity Charity Luncheon in aid of Hft – Friday 29th March 2019 At the Park Inn Hotel, 2 St Mary’s Street, Bedford, MK42 0AR Guest Speaker - Valerie Singleton OBE
During her early twenties, Valerie was one of the top voice-over artists in television commercials, she worked as an actress for five years in the theatre, fronted numerous television advertising campaigns and then became a household name presenting much loved television programmes including Blue Peter, Nationwide, Val Meets the VIPs, Tonight, Tonight in Town and the hard hitting Money Programme - not forgetting the memorable Blue Peter Special Assignments. This was followed by PM for BBC Radio 4.
Valerie went on to present programmes on such diverse topics as travel, history, alcohol abuse, violence in present day society and a game show! Her life’s work has been honoured with an OBE, bestowed by Her Majesty the Queen. Her talk, “Some Times in My Life” will entertain diners with various fun and some serious events that have happened during her remarkable career.
Hft is a national charity supporting adults with learning disabilities to live the best lives possible. Their person-centred services support people to live with more choice, more independence and with greater access to their local communities. Currently, in excess of 50 people make use of the day opportunities at the centre in Shefford; activities include pottery, art, aromatherapy, massage, a weekly quiz and a dance. Funds raised will be used to develop the garden area which is tired and in need of renovation. A new patio area would benefit everyone, making a real difference to people’s quality of life. Thank you for your support.
