Trustee’s Sue Thomas and Rob Grieve traveled up to the MediaCityUK studios to give moral support and had a fantastic evening watching two episodes of the show being filmed. The programme is due to be broadcast after Christmas and although we now know who won we are sworn to absolute secrecy!
Each contestant was raising money for their chosen charity and Alice was obviously raising money for For-ethiopia. The other charities involved were Plan UK, Cancer Research UK and the Steven Gerrard Foundation.
A nice tie-in to this story is that John Humphrys was one of the first people to give For-ethiopia a grant when we received £6000 through the Kitchen Table Charities Trust in 2006.
More details about the show and broadcast times will appear on the BBC website in due course:
