I was performing at the reception and tables last night helping to raise money for Help for Heroes function at Orsett Hall, Grays, Essex organised by the Essex Business Network - along with two other magicians. 350 people attended this Black Tie Banquet Evening with guest celebrities and surprises. Speaking to one of the organisers they hope to raise £10,000 from this event. There were actual serving soldiers at the event - I left before the end and it appeared to be a very successful evening
