TV Presenter Gail Porter to Co-host Winter Extravaganza Ball Alongside Starr Trust Ambassador and Media Vet Marc Abraham OBE

The Starr Trust is extremely excited to announce that television personality Gail Porter will be joining her good friend and Ambassador of the charity Marc Abraham OBE to co-host the completely sold-out Winter Extravaganza Ball. During the evening, the audience will also hear from Olympic Legend Eddie ‘the Eagle’ Edwards who will be interviewed by the Charity Chairman Rob Starr, including taking questions from the guests. 

The Winter Extravaganza is the biggest fundraising effort in the Starr Trust’s annual calendar of events and is this year returning for the first time following the pandemic. Set to take place this Saturday 29th October at the Hilton Brighton Metropole, the event is generously sponsored by RubixVT and Handelsbanken without whom the event would not be possible. Also kindly supporting the evening are Highweald Wine Estate, Creative Pod and Gemini Print

Gail Porter, TV Presenter and Actress said: "I’m really looking forward to spending a night with wonderful people to help raise as much as possible for this worthy charity who young people rely on to improve the quality of their lives. It will be fun as always to work with my good friend Marc and, of course, get to meet all the kind supporters of the Starr Trust."

Dr Marc Abraham OBE, Media Vet, and Ambassador to the Starr Trust said: "Can't wait to share the stage with my lovely friend Gail and try and raise as much money as possible for the Starr Trust. The charity seems to go from strength to strength, helping so many young people and their families in Brighton and beyond, and I'm just so proud to be an Ambassador and help support all their incredible work."

Nick Poyner, MD of RubixVT and Sponsor of the Winter Extravaganza said: “We are proud to be sponsors of this fantastic ball, alongside sponsoring the snowboarding experience on the night… Can’t wait to see guests trying out their skills whilst raising much needed funds for the Starr Trust charity! Look forward to seeing you all there!”
