This year we are raising money for the immense work being done by The Christie Hospital to combat the insidious disease, Cancer.

This is a thing that touches nearly every family in UK and, personally, has unfortunately affected my close family this year. The staff at the hospital have been nothing but amazing and this has inspired me to divert all profits from this year's event to The Christie along with other monies raised on the day by our charity auction, gifting and our 'Selfie Corner'.

That's right. A Selfie Corner.

This year, in a break from tradition, we are going to ask you NOT to take any selfies with the guests at the tables and instead utilise the Selfie Corner where every single penny donated will go toward the #exterminatecancer drive.

How will this work? Well, every single guest on the bill will have a timed slot at Selfie Corner and for a suggested donation of five pounds they will take selfies with you using your phone. In order to raise as much money as we can we will have a member of Vworp Staff at the corner ensuring that phones are ready and photos are taken to ensure that the maximum amount of folks move through and the maximum amount of cash can be raised.

We do hope that you will get behind this move and the #exterminatecancer drive.

This years hashtags will be #vworp19 and #exterminatecancer so please attached these to any social media posts relating to the event

As ever I thank you for getting behind the event and our chosen charity and I look forward to seeing you all in September.
