A host of stars came together for a night of inspiration and celebration at the annual Paul Strank Charitable Gala on 23rd September in aid of their Charitable Trust and the local charities they support including Shooting Star Chase.
The Gala, which took place at the Bank of England Sports Centre in London, enjoyed entertainment from X Factor stars Fleur East and Danyl Johnson, hosts James & Ola Jordan, who performed a special dance number and Britain’s Got Talent runner up Stavros Flatley who showcased their iconic routine.
Frank Bruno, Theo Paphitis, Beverley Knight and the stars of Made in Chelsea and The Only Way Is Essex were just a handful of famous faces, who donated their time and money with an auction and raffles taking place throughout the evening.
Paul Strank Roofing has been a loyal supporter of Shooting Star Chase for many years and first became involved with the charity when they very kindly donated a number of Christmas gifts for children at the hospice.
Since then Paul and Irene Strank are constantly raising awareness for the charity, utilising their drive and passion to help others to raise huge amounts for local charities and the community over the past 30 years.
With the establishment of the Paul Strank Charitable Trust it is hoped their fundraising can reach new heights; Paul said “Our focus has always been on the most disadvantaged in our community with a particular emphasis on helping children in need and their families so we’re thrilled to have launched the Charitable Trust – a grant-making charity which will continue this ethos in providing vital funding and support to those most in need of our compassion and help.”
The continued support from Paul and Irene is invaluable and Shooting Star Chase is delighted to hear of the great success of this year’s Gala.
